Music for All receives Grant from The NAMM Foundation


Music for All has been named a grant recipient of The NAMM Foundation. The organisation was selected as one of 24 organisations to receive a grant to fund vital programs that create and support access to musical instruction and that serve to inspire a life-long love of making music in its population.

“We are so pleased to benefit Music for All with a grant in their quest to continue to create access and opportunities for all people to experience the joy of making music,” shared Mary Luehrsen, Executive Director of the The NAMM Foundation. “It is through their transformative work of nonprofit music service organisations that thousands of people will discover their own musical talent.”

The grant serves to underscore the Foundation’s mission to advance participation in music making and offer quality access to all people. As one of 24 recipients, Music for All will utilise the resource as a means to support the organisation’s mission to ‘make more musicians’.

Paul McManus, CEO of Music for All said, “This magnificent NAMM Foundation support for our charity will enable us to create and support more and more music makers throughout the UK. We are deeply grateful to The NAMM Foundation for their generosity.”

Since its inception in 1994, The NAMM Foundation’s annual grant program has donated more than $16 million in support to domestic and international music education programs, scientific research, advocacy and public service programs related to music making. The grants are funded in part by donations from the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) and its 10,300 member companies worldwide.
