The Foundation primarily awards grants to nonprofits working in the areas of music, education, and grassroots organizing. Music grants support emerging professional musicians or music-development programs. Education and teaching grants fund projects that deal with “the whole student” and with learning as a community activity. Grassroots organizing grants encourage activist strategies for addressing institutional injustices and for building a reasonable, just society. The Foundation’s current emphasis in the Grassroots organizing grant category is on energy democracy – ground-level community organizing at the intersection of utilities/energy infrastructure, housing/community resources, and racial justice. The Foundation also provides some limited support for projects in Israel that involve Palestinian communities. Online questionnaires must be completed by April 1. Letters of intent are due April 15; the deadline for final applications is May 15. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
