Stringed Instrument Matching Grant Program

Classics for Kids Accepting Applications for Stringed Instrument Matching Grant Program

Studies show that kids who play a stringed instrument score higher on standardized tests, enjoy more parental involvement at school, and develop better self-discipline. Despite this, school music programs, especially strings programs, remain vulnerable to budget cuts.

The Classics for Kids Foundation aims to bridge the funding gap and enhance school music programs by providing matching grants for beautiful new stringed instruments.

Through the Classics for Kids matching grant program, CFKF provides grants for the purchase of high-quality instruments because they’re easier to tune and play; contribute to a better and more effective classroom; are tonally superior; have better durability and longevity; and inspire kids to practice and stay involved with their program.

The program is open to K-12 schools or nonprofit organizations that believe in the role of fine instruments in their programs and can show evidence of need and commitment to raising matching funds.

See the CFKF for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
