Mockingbird Foundation Music Grants

Type: Foundations
Source: Mockingbird Foundation
Program: Mockingbird Foundation Music Grants
Eligibility: Grants are typically made only to nonprofit organizations with
tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue
Service code, or who have a sponsoring agency with this status.
Organizations selected to submit a full proposal will be required
to submit documentation of their status as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt
institution or as a public school. Public schools are tax-exempt
and thus eligible for funding, although school-based grantees
cannot be independent of the school, must take place at the school,
and must be supervised by the applicable municipality. Mockingbird
does not normally consider grants to individuals or to fund
research, fundraising organizations or events, programs that
promote or engage in religious or political doctrine, or
organizations outside the United States.
Purpose:

he Mockingbird Foundation, Inc. (“Mockingbird”)
offers competitive grants to schools and nonprofit organizations
that effect improvements in areas of importance to the Phish fan
community. Our programmatic focus is music education for children,
defined as follows:


Music: Mockingbird is particularly
interested in projects that encourage and foster creative
expression in any musical form (including composition,
instrumentation, vocalization, or improvisation), but also
recognizes broader and more basic needs within conventional
instruction. Mockingbird encourages applications associated with
diverse or unusual musical styles, genres, forms, and
philosophies.


Education: 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, butdoes
not
 fund music therapy which is neither education nor
music appreciation which does not include participation.


Children: Mockingbird is interested in
targeting children eighteen years of age or younger, but will
consider projects which benefit college students, teachers,
instructors, or adult students. Mockingbird is particularly (though
not exclusively) interested in programs which benefit
disenfranchised groups, including those with low skill levels,
income, or education; with disabilities or terminal illnesses; and
in foster homes, shelters, hospitals, prisons, or other remote or
isolated situations.
