Support for organisations
The foundation also focuses on supporting organizations whose mission is the systematic and long-term development of young musical talents. These include organizers of master classes, youth music academies and other projects that are in line with the foundation's mission. In 2021, a grant procedure will not be announced in this program, but the management of the foundation will support a few selected projects based on careful consideration and considering the current complex conditions related to the restriction of living culture due to the coronavirus pandemic. The support will be focused mainly on projects that cannot rely on the certainty of public funding, and at the same time are of a high artistic level.
Rescue of the organ
Jan Stadler's paternal ancestors came from the small town of Strážov in Pošumaví. Jan Stadler strongly perceived the historical turbulence during the 20th century, including the difficult fate of the Sudetenland. As a result of the deportation of the original inhabitants of the Sudetenland to Germany and the subsequent devastation of the landscape by the communists, many villages disappeared, and many others were irreversibly damaged. There are still many valuable buildings in the Czech border area that have not been saved or reconstructed. Jan Stadler therefore expressed his wish that the foundation he founded would, within its possibilities, support the restoration of neglected and broken organs found in churches or monasteries in the regions of the former Sudetenland, which have the potential to once again become valuable musical instruments with corresponding sound and aesthetic quality. However, any such restoration requires huge financial resources. The Foundation's priority is currently the restoration of the Hrzánské Palace in Celetná Street in Prague, and therefore funds for saving the organ will only be released to a limited extent and according to the Foundation's current financial capabilities. The basic condition for such a contribution is a functioning community in the given place and the possibility of regular artistic use of the instrument in addition to its church function.
