School Music Programs Receive Financial Help; Courts Threaten Shut-Down
Sixteen area schools have received the first of two contributions to their music programs from the SMART Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports “music education for all children.” The schools received almost $16,000 as supplemental funding in January, with a second contribution planned for this coming June.
In addition, the SMART Foundation also provides instruments at reduced rates for qualified students. Under its GI/FT (Grant Instruments/Funding Talent) program, the Foundation reduces its rental fee according to financial need. Support from this program comes primarily from individual donations.
