If your school or non-profit organization believes in the role of fine instruments in your program, and can show evidence of need and commitment to raising matching funds, you are a strong candidate for the Classics for Kids matching grant program.
The Classics for Kids Foundation empowers young people to shape their futures through music, helps build sustainable stringed instrument music programs, and provides grants for the purchase of high-quality instruments.
To that end, matching grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to schools or nonprofit organizations that incorporate fine instruments in their music programs.
To be eligible, public or private schools and nonprofit organizations must demonstrate need and a commitment to raising matching funds.
We accept grant applications quarterly. Grant deadlines are: June 30, September 30, December 31 and March 31.
