Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to USA nonprofit music organizations to develop promotional materials such as brochures, websites, and marketing videos. Funding is intended to assist nonprofits in the development of grant application materials that may be required to secure additional funding from other organizations.

Funds are to be used for the development of promotional materials (for example, website, marketing videos, brochures), grant proposals or other materials and documents required to make a compelling case for larger funding from other organizations.

The ideal applicant organization has an existing program that:

  • Has a history of success in creating new music makers
  • Reaches adult learners as well as young people
  • Is not solely “achievement-based” (that is, designed to encourage life-long music participation rather than high-level performance)
  • Can be reproduced in other places with other leadership
  • Is capable of attracting greater funding from larger organizations

An applicant organization does not have to meet all the above criteria to be awarded a Program Development Grant. Any organizations with innovative new programs are encouraged to apply.

Evaluation Criteria:

  • Quality: Project is well thought out and demonstrates, supports or promotes the creation of new music makers. Project is focused on developing materials to be used for applying for larger funding from other foundations.
  • Implementation: Applicant demonstrates ability to successfully design and implement the project. This might include documented planning, leadership, financial management and/or timeline.
  • Benefit/Impact: Applicant articulates how the organization will benefit from the project and the impact that the project will have on future funding from other foundations and ultimately on the creation of new music makers. Project will “engage the public” by supporting programs/activities designed to “increase the number of all people making and teaching music.
