The NAMM Foundation supports teachers, parents and community leaders with resources and programs to advance music making for all.
It’s because of the Best Communities for Music Education designation that our music programs have been able to withstand dramatic school aid cuts. After we received this designation in 2006, Senator Owen Johnson awarded the district a $70,000 grant for the purchase of new music textbooks and development programs for our music teachers and staff.
The SupportMusic Coalition is a signature program of The NAMM Foundation that unites non-profit organizations, schools, and businesses working to assure that music education is supported in communities everywhere, and that all children have the opportunity to learn and grow with music.
