ASCAP Foundation Announces Grant Guidelines for New 2010 Funding

The ASCAP Foundation is a publicly supported charitable organization dedicated to supporting American music creators and encouraging their development through music education and talent development programs.

The ASCAP Foundation considers proposals from other nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations engaging in music education and talent development programs that are consistent with the mission and objectives of the ASCAP Foundation and which support music education programs for aspiring songwriters and composers.

The foundation's average grant is between $1,500 and $3,000 and is made on an annual one-time basis.

The foundation does not consider requests for general operating or administrative support or annual giving campaigns, capital purposes, endowments, deficit operations, recordings, marketing efforts, or performance and production funding. The foundation does not purchase advertisements, sponsor events, or donate equipment.

Grant applications for 2010 are by invitation only. Applicants must first submit a letter of intent and then be invited by the ASCAP Foundation to complete and submit a full grant application. Visit the foundation's Web site for complete grant guidelines and the Letter of Intent form.
