The MTNA Foundation Fund is committed to keeping America’s musical future alive for future generations by supporting comprehensive programs that nurture the creation, performance, study and teaching of music.
One way to help meet this commitment is the Grants program, funded through MTNA Foundation Fund endowments. These grants are available to MTNA members and non-members alike, as well as affiliate organizations.
Program Enrichment Grants are provided to organizations seeking "seed funds" to assist with the creation of grant application materials that can lead to more funding from other organizations.
Teacher Enrichment Grants are provided to music teachers for private study, specific college-level course work or other projects that will enhance the performing and teaching skills of the applicant.
Affiliate Matching Grants are available to MTNA-affiliated Local Associations, new Local Associations and State Affiliates.
Local Association Grants are awarded to MTNA-affiliated local associations for projects that provide educational opportunities for students and teachers. Grants are also given for projects that support the promotion of music in the immediate community. Matching grants are available for established associations. Start-up grants are available for associations in the process of being formed.
State Affiliate Matching Grants provide assistance to MTNA-affiliated state associations for professional and educational development of their state membership, along with the creation of innovative programs that will promote and enhance music and the development of music technology throughout the state, and to enhance and strengthen MTNA membership alliances in state associations.
