FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: Quarterly Piano Grants (Ongoing)
The mission of the Ross McKee Foundation is to support piano performance and education in nine San Francisco Bay Area counties.
Toward this end, the Foundation supports piano-related expenses — typically artist fees, piano rental, moving and tuning fees — for performance organizations large and small in the Bay Area. Piano education is supported primarily through scholarship programs at San Francisco State University and the San Francisco Conservatory, as well as grants to other educational organizations.
Most Ross McKee grants are under $5,000; some larger grants are awarded to organizations with extensive and established programs. The amount of your request, however, should be for the actual amount needed — large or small — to cover line-item expenses directly related to piano performance and education.
Application Deadlines: apply quarterly (2020 deadlines: February 7, May 1, July 31, and October 31)
