Grant Information & Application

Next Funding Application Deadline: July 1, 2021

Fund for Tomorrow grants provide financial support to members of the American Choral Directors Association for creative and innovative projects that provide children access to choral singing, as well as projects that reach young people who face barriers and may not otherwise have equitable access to the benefits and community that choral music provides.

These grants support new ideas, creative approaches, and projects that break new ground. They are not to fund efforts like festivals, guest clinicians, commission projects, program expansions, or other [worthy] endeavors that do not demonstrate new and innovative ideas that others can learn from. Applications should address how they significantly address each of the priorities listed below.

Funding Priorities

• Focused on choral work and/or singing
• Reaches children and youth who often do not have access to choirs and/or singing experiences
