Grants For Music Education
Save The Music partners with school districts and local communities to build sustainable music programs
We invest in schools
We partner with public school districts to donate grants in the form of new musical instruments, technology, equipment, and resources for music teachers and school leaders. Grants provide opportunities for schools to jumpstart and support their music programs. Check out the types of grants for music education we offer:
