Get Your Wishes Granted: Supplementary Funds for School Music Programs Are Available from a Wide Array of Sources, but Tapping into Them Requires Time, Effort, and Savvy
Randall, Mac
Teaching Music, v16 n4 p38 Jan 2009
Music teachers across the country are taking advantage of a wide range of grants from any number of sources--cities and towns, states, the federal government, nonprofit foundations, businesses, even generous individuals--to lend extra strength to their programs. Finding the right grantor for one's program is a major part of the equation. Before beginning the grant search, there's one very important thing to keep in mind: Any funds one seeks through a grant have to be regarded by grantor and school alike as supplemental. Because the arts have been designated a core subject under the reauthorized No Child Left Behind Act, financial support for music education must be part of every school district's budget. In this article, the author describes two music educators' successful sojourn through the grant process and discusses ways on how to proceed in finding the right grantor for one's program.
