NAMM Foundation Announces Wanna Play Fund Grants for Instruments Available to Schools and Community Organizations

United States
CARLSBAD, Calif. , November 15, 2010— The NAMM Foundation announced today the availability of grants from its Wanna Play Fund for instruments, awarded to schools that are expanding or reinstating music education programs as part of their core curriculum and that employ quality music teachers.

Interested schools must meet the following criteria to apply for the grants:

• 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

Interested applicants must complete the online grant application at www.nammfoundation.org/grant-information/apply-grant-and-scholarship where guidelines are available. Schools must provide verifiable Employer Identification Number (EIN) and/or tax-exempt documentation. Online grant applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Applicants will be notified within 30 days of submission whether or not a grant will be awarded.

The NAMM Foundation’s Wanna Play Fund was established in 2009 in collaboration with Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is devoted to advancing access to music and arts learning for all children. In October 2010, Gov. Huckabee launched the Wanna Play! CD in collaboration with the NAMM Foundation at www.wannaplaycd.org, a compilation by leading recording artists who donated their musical talents to advance the cause of the Wanna Play Fund. All proceeds will benefit the Wanna Play Fund.
