Grants

Funding Priorities:
We grant to individuals and organizations with an exceptional talent for helping people feel fully alive through rhythm — as expressed in music and movement. We give special consideration to those who serve under-resourced communities.

Individuals:
We grant two-year fellowships to teaching artists specializing in music and movement. You must reside in the United States to be eligible. Click here to see current and past Fellows.

Organizations: 
We fund organizations in Oregon and Washington. Read their bios here.
Special consideration is given to those committed to one or more of the following:
  • on-going skill building
  • working with children under 18
  • experts working and playing with non-experts
  • working toward synchrony and inclusion
  • overcoming barriers related to race and class
  • building community
  • linking diverse groups
  • creating a ripple effect
  • involving mentors
  • creating foot stomping public performances in a party-like atmosphere
We do not fund:
  • programs that require auditions
  • programs where mastery is the goal
  • performances where students are the audience
  • programs for purely religious purposes
  • theatrical productions without a commitment to joyful rhythm and movement
