School Grants

Madison Jazz Society Announces 2021-22 Grant Program for Wisconsin School jazz Education Programs

In November, the Madison Jazz Society will award grants, on a competitive basis, to schools to enhance their jazz education programs. Grant proposals may include, but are not limited to, purchasing instruments and equipment, sheet music, play along CDs, books or videos and, to a lesser extent, clinics and hiring of guest artists. Final selection will be based partly on which proposal(s) provides the opportunity for the greatest number of students to learn about and/or participate in jazz related activities. Grant requests must be limited to $500 per project to help the Society assist as many schools and projects as possible.

In 2020, over $4,400 in grants was awarded to schools around the state. 

MJS members are available to serve as docents to participate in the conduct of approved projects. Schools can join to submit a joint application for funding.

The grant application deadline is Friday, October 8, 2021, and consists of a cover page that can be accompanied by a not more than two-page narrative telling of the school’s proposal and letters of support.
