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 25 organisations to receive a grant to fund vital programmes that create and support access to musical instruction and that serve to inspire a life-long love of making music in its population.

“Through the transformative work of Music for All, thousands of people will be served with the opportunity to discover their talents and experience the joy and benefits of making music,” shared Mary Luehrsen, Executive Director of The NAMM Foundation.

The grants serve to underscore the Foundation’s mission to advance participation in music making and offer quality access to all people. As one of 25 recipients, Music for All will utilise the resource as a means to support their mission to continue to create access and opportunities for all people to experience the joy of making music

Paul McManus, Chief Executive of Music for All said, “This wonderful continued NAMM Foundation support for our charity will enable us to carry on creating and supporting 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 $17 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.
