Singing for Change

Funder: 

Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville

Maximum Award: 

$10,000

Singing for Change grants focus on improving the quality of life for people and empowering individuals to make positive changes in their communities. Competitive grants are offered to progressive, community-based nonprofit organizations that address the root causes of social and environmental problems in the following areas:

  • Children and Families: Programs that are concerned with the health, education and protection of children and their families. Projects that foster self-esteem and self-sufficiency and that teach nonviolence and creative problem solving are most likely to be considered.
  • The Environment: Programs that promote environmental awareness and teach people methods of conservation, protection and the responsible use of natural resources.
  • Disenfranchised groups: Programs that help people overcome social or economic barriers to education or employment, promote the empowerment of individuals toward self-sufficiency, and provide opportunities for personal growth.

Proposals are by invitation only. A letter of interest must be submitted and organizations are notified if selected for further consideration. Grants of $1,000 and less may be awarded on the basis of the letter of interest without requiring a full proposal.
