New Fund: Music Man Foundation Strengthening the Sector

The Music Man Foundation announced $750,000 in grants to four nonprofit organizations. Funds aim to nurture initiatives to secure increased funding for the arts, advocate for pro-arts and pro-artists policy changes, and raise awareness about the profound impact of arts on our health and well-being. The announcement comes on the 121st birthday of Meredith Willson, who wrote the musical “The Music Man” and in whose honor the Foundation was established.

Grantmakers in the Arts is honored to be an inaugural recipient of this grant to support our efforts for pro-arts public policies including access to the arts and support for workers. Learn more about the award and the other recipients here.
