The Hinrichsen Foundation CIO is a charity mainly devoted to the promotion of new music.
It was founded in 1976 by Mrs Carla Eddy Hinrichsen to ensure the continuation of the tradition of supporting contemporary music established by the Hinrichsen family as the proprietors of Edition Peters the music publishers, established more than 200 years ago in the German city of Leipzig. Until 2010 the Hinrichsen Foundation was the beneficial shareholder of Peters Edition Limited, London. In 2011, following the amalgamation of the post-war branches of Edition Peters, the Hinrichsen Foundation became a major shareholder in the company. In 2023 the Foundation successfully sold its interests to a company jointly owned by Wise Music Group and Christian Hinrichsen. The Foundation now derives its income from an investment portfolio.
