The Rudi Martinus van Dijk Foundation

In the search for truth and authenticity, music should mirror who we are and what we can be.

Composers and conductors are the leaders of the music world. Inspired by the compassion and work of composer Rudi Martinus van Dijk, we formed this foundation in his name. Our fundraising charitable music organisation supports musical education projects as well as aspiring composers, instrumentalists and conductors who live in parts of the world where there is political strife or economic deprivation. Through sponsorship, scholarships and workshops, we bring about social change by giving young people opportunities to develop their talents.
