The Peter R. Marsh Foundation’s Middle School Music Grant has profoundly impacted the lives of thousands of students across the nation.
Teachers have shared that the place they would most likely find a grant opportunity is through their state Music Education Association (MEA). In the interest of reaching the thousands of middle school music teachers who have not yet learned of this Grant, please share the following information on your state MEA website, in newsletters, and/or social media one or more times before the end of January 2024:
The Peter R. Marsh Foundation accepts requests for the Middle School Music Grant program between September 1st and January 31st annually. Grants for $1000 are available, nationwide, to public middle school music teachers in the United States.
This program supports the efforts of teachers in leading their students to a fruitful life of behavioral kindness and emotional wellness, by nurturing empathy and compassion through community service and an inspiration to become more accomplished musicians. Additionally, the grant provides funds directly to music teachers for the enhancement of their classroom music education program.
The Grantee and their middle school music students are to provide a minimum of three musical performances at senior facilities in their local or nearby communities during the school year. Each engagement is to include a post-performance student/senior visitation period.
