MPTF Guidelines

Music Performance Trust Fund (MPTF)

The goal of the Music Performance Trust Fund (MPTF) is to present live musical performances of the best quality in an effort to increase public knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of live music. The MPTF is funded by the Recording Industries of North America and is independent of the American Federation of Musicians. The MPTF subsidizes concerts and educational performances that are "Free and open to the public". The MPTF does not provide assistance for fundraising, political, religious or charitable events. Possible venues include:
               Schools (Public & Private)        Community Centres
               City Squares                             Arts Festivals
               Shopping Malls                         Seniors & Veterans Homes
               Outdoor Stages                         Parks
               Hospitals                                   Street Festivals
               Parades                                      Canada Day Events Requests for co-funding should be submitted to the MPTF committee a minimum of six (6) weeks prior to the performance(s). Requests can be made by the musician(s) or the sponsoring organization. The Toronto Musicians’ Association (TMA) will submit your request to the MPTF office in New York City for review and will notify us if it has been approved. The subsidy from the MPTF is based on the TMA Tariff of fees pertaining to Miscellaneous scale for a three-hour call plus pension and HST. The percentage of co-funding depends on the type of performance:
          30% - general concerts
           40% - hospital, veterans & nursing home performances
           50% - school/educational performances The Co-Sponsor is required to pay the total cost to the band leader on the day of the performance. MPTF will send a cheque for the subsidy to the co-sponsor following the concert. The leader will file a contract with the local and make the payments to the side musicians as well as work dues and pension. The Co-Sponsor will pay a 3% administration fee to the TMA to cover the cost of administering this programme. The MPTF Committee will assist with all the paperwork. The following credit line must be read at all MPTF performances:
