Funded by: The Mockingbird Foundation
Description: Grants given to support K-12 music education on a national basis. Education may include the provision of instruments, texts, and office materials, and the support of learning space, practice space, performance space, and instructors/instruction. Mockingbird is particularly interested in projects that foster self-esteem and free expression, but does not typically fund music therapy which is not education or music appreciation which does not include participation. The Foundation is interested in targeting children 18 years or younger, but will consider projects which benefit college students, teachers, instructors, or adult students. In addition, the Foundation is particularly (though not exclusively) interested in programs which benefit disenfranchised groups, including those with low skill levels, income, or education.
