Grant Alert: Music Matters for School Music Programs
The Muzak Heart & Soul Foundation’s mission is to support music education. Through the Foundation's Music Matters Grant Program, grants of up to $6,000 are provided to K-12 school music programs and independent music programs throughout the United States. Music education – vocal or instrumental – must be the key component of any music program requesting funds.
Highest consideration is given to those programs in need of basic materials such as instruments and sheet music, programs serving economically disadvantaged students, programs involving innovative educational reform, and programs with established, collaborative partnerships with parent-teacher-student associations and other community groups.
Public school programs serving a minimum of 50% low-income students as well as nonprofit organizations directly funding music education and serving students regardless of their ability to pay are eligible to apply.
The application deadline is February 17, 2012. Visit the Foundation’s website in the link below to download the grant guidelines and application form.
