Grants of up to $5,000 to Bay Area, California nonprofits to support piano performances. The Foundation typically provides funding for artist fees, piano rental, moving, and tuning fees. The Foundation also supports piano education by making grants to educational organizations.

For the purposes of these grants, the Bay Area includes: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Solano, Santa Clara, and Sonoma Counties.

The amount of an applicant's request should be for the actual amount needed to cover line-item expenses directly related to piano performance and education. If you have provided a clear and accurate budget, the Foundation can then decide whether to fund your entire request or some portion thereof. It is most helpful if the amount corresponds to a line item in the budget (say, artist fee) or is the sum of line items (artist fee, piano rental, tuning).

Most Ross McKee grants are under $5,000; some larger grants are awarded to organizations with extensive and established programs.

The Foundation rarely awards funding to individuals or for-profit organizations.

The Foundation does not fund the purchase of pianos or keyboards.
