Funding to support the purchase, rental or repair of instruments that are used for music programs for low-income youth
The Klarman Family Foundation, a Boston-based private family foundation, would like to make your organization aware of the Instrument Fund. Targeted to music education programs reaching low-income youth during the school day or out-of-school time, this Fund aims to eliminate one barrier for youth to play music at their highest level of interest and ability. Grant funds may be used for the purchase, rental, repair and warranties for string, woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments, keyboards, and accessories (e.g. risers, music stands, instrument storage equipment, instrument cases).
To learn more about the purpose and guidelines of the Fund, and to access the online application, click here. The Foundation is accepting proposals for the Instrument Fund on a rolling basis.
PLEASE NOTE: Organizations may only receive one Instrument Fund grant within a 24 month period, and must meet eligibility requirements, as outlined on the website. The grants are intended to enhance, not replace, an organization’s budget for instruments and accessories.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions, or if you would like additional information about KFF’s Instrument Fund.
