About the Foundation

The William Lincer Foundation, a not-for-profit Corporation under the laws of the State of New York, was founded in August 1999 by former students and friends as a way to honor the life and career of one of this century's outstanding viola teachers and performers. Funds to create and sustain this Foundation are being solicited solely from friends, former students, and colleagues of Mr. Lincer. No funding has been sought from the Lincer estate. Members for the Board of Directors are drawn from former students and associates, who receive no compensation for their services.

The Foundation seeks to achieve the following goals, pursuant to the raising of sufficient monies:

1) To maintain this Web site, which will serve as a memorial for William Lincer

2) To establish the William Lincer Composer Competition, dedicated to the expansion of the viola's repertoire, with prize money awarded from the Foundation.
