Your Moravian Ministries Foundation in America’s new Field of Interest funds allow you to align your gifts to the causes you care about most (rather than specific institutions). Various institutions, including Moravian churches and agencies, detail their plans and success measures in the form of grant requests. Grants are made by a board of active Moravians to the applicants who have the strongest plans which are best aligned with the purpose of the fund. Your Moravian Ministries Foundation in America maintains due diligence to assure the funds are used according to plan, consistent with mission of the Field of Interest Fund, and that goal achievement is documented.

Individuals come to MOD recommended by a shelter or agency in New York. Upon admission, each new resident receives a personal service plan to address the causes of homelessness and to build greater self-reliance. Residents have their own mailboxes and also an email address; they also have the use of the kitchen and the Common Room.

  • Moravian Music Foundation
    Moravian Music Foundation

    We were founded in 1956, to preserve, study, edit and publish the music retained in the Archives of the Moravian Church in America, Northern and Southern Provinces.

    The Moravian Music Foundation preserves, shares and celebrates Moravian musical culture.

    Since our establishment, we have acquired many additional items, including the Irving Lowens Collection of early American tunebooks; the band books of the 26th North Carolina Regimental Band (from the Civil War); and a reference library of over 6,000 volumes, specializing in Protestant church music and American music history.

    We are responsible for many first modern-day performances of music from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This organization is an important resource for scholars, performers, church musicians, and students worldwide. Over 40 orchestral works from our holdings have been edited and placed in the Fleisher Collection of the Philadelphia (PA) Free Library.

    The collections of the Moravian Music Foundation contain some 10,000 manuscripts and early imprints of vocal and instrumental music, sacred and secular, from the sixteenth through twentieth centuries. Not all of this was written by Moravian composers, but it is all music which the Moravians used and enjoyed. Included in the collections of the Moravian Music Foundation are works by Haydn and Mozart, J. C. Bach, Abel, Johann Stamitz, and a host of lesser-known composers. A number of these are the only known copies in the world.

    The Moravian collections, then, provide a cross-section of classical musical culture, placing the masters in their proper historical perspective.
