The NAMM Foundation (National Association of Music Merchants) has recently announced its WannaPlay grants opportunity, which provides musical instruments for community and school ensembles in the USA that are in need of additional instruments.
In order to qualify for these grants, ensemble supporting organizations must meet the following criteria (quoted from the NAMM website):
- “Public schools serving low-income students; percentage of free and reduced lunch data required
- Community organizations servicing low-income students and students with special needs; community demographic information required
- Schools and community programs that have made a commitment to hiring and retaining high-quality music teachers and providing standards-based, sequential learning in music”
