Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation Invites Applications for Music Donation Program

The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation is accepting applications for in-kind donations of musical instruments to underfunded music programs.

Through its Keeping Music Alive program, the foundation will donate musical instruments to music programs that serve low-income communities and have little or no budget for instruments. Priority will be given to programs that serve the most students within a school population.

Public, private, and charter schools may apply, but schools must be Title 1 and/or serve a population where at least 50 percent of the kids qualify for the National Lunch Program. In addition, schools must have an established instrumental music program (concert band, marching band, jazz band, and/or orchestra) that takes place during the regular school day and is at least three years old. Schools that offer Orff/classroom music only are not eligible to apply.

Pre-qualification forms must be received no later than August 1, 2014. Upon review, selected schools will be invited to submit full applications.

See the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
