Medieval Music & Arts Foundation - Purpose Statement

The following statements are extracted from the Articles of Incorporation and Corporate Bylaws as they are filed with the State of California. Although these documents contain much verbiage, the following sections are the ones which seem to contain something of interest.

Articles - Paragraph #2

This corporation is a nonprofit public benefit corporation and is not organized for the private gain of any person. It is organized under the Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Law for charitable purposes. The specific purposes for which this corporation is organized are education of the public with regard to medieval music, as well as promoting the understanding of music and related artforms which adopt medieval idioms or purposes. The means for providing such education include, but are not limited to, written discussion and explanation as well as maintenance of a forum through which artists or related organizations can reach the general public.

Bylaws - Article 2, Section 1

The primary objectives and purposes of this corporation shall be:

  1. to provide overviews and orientation by which the general public can relate medieval music and its sub-repertories to other subjects with which they might be more familiar;
