The NAMM Foundation recently announced the 21 recipients of the NAMM Foundation’s 2013-2014 program grants, allocating $500,000 in funding to innovative, community-based music learning programs that expand access to the many benefits of active music making.

The new grants, while only a small portion of the National Association of Music Merchant’s (NAMM) overall annual multimillion-dollar-reinvestment into the music products industry, help organizations operate programs that increase interest and participation in making music among teachers, seniors, college students and school-aged children. Since 1994, the NAMM Foundation has supported worthy U.S. and international music-making programs with nearly $14.2 million dollars in grant-making support.

Grant recipients include PASIC, Street-Level Youth Media, Music for All, Little Kids Rock, and Carolina Studios Corp. For a full list of award recipients, visit the NAMM Foundation online. []
