The William A. Schwartz Instrument Loan Program
AICF proudly continues its 80-year tradition of sharing its impressive collection of string instruments with exceptional musicians in need. This collection has been acquired through donations from institutions and independent donors in Israel and abroad. AICF’s lending program ensures that promising musicians without the means to purchase a quality instrument may practice, audition, and perform on top-tier instruments. The program enables our bank of quality instruments to endure for future generations.
In 2022 AICF is proud to rename the program into the William A. Schwartz Instrument Loan Program to honor Bill’s exceptional philanthropic legacy. William A. Schwartz (Z”L), fondly known as Bill, was an extraordinary leader, philanthropist, and champion of the arts. Bill’s passion for music and Israel made him an unparalleled advocate of AICF, in which he served as President and Board Chair for many years.
