Grants of up to $5,000 to California nonprofit performance organizations in the nine San Francisco Bay area counties for projects and concerts that promote piano performances or music that includes the piano as a featured instrument. Funding will be provided to support piano-related expenses such as artist fees, piano rental, moving and tuning fees.

Available Funding:

Most Ross McKee grants are under $5,000; some larger grants are awarded to organizations with extensive and established programs. The amount of your request, however, should be for the actual amount needed — large or small — to cover line-item expenses directly related to piano performance and education. If you’ve 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 ask amount corresponds to a line item in the budget (say, artist fee) or is the sum of line items (artist fee, piano rental, tuning).
