In partnership with the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, the League will be awarding grants to member orchestras starting or expanding program work within their communities. Grants will range from $20,000-40,000. Eligible programs will include in-school programs; afterschool programs that align musical and social goals; health-and-wellness programs; and early-childhood and criminal-justice programs. To receive a grant, orchestras must fulfill a specific need in their community and partner with at least one other community or cultural organization.
