Want a $1000 grant to help children? Here’s your chance!

Ever had a great idea for a project that would make children’s lives better but you didn’t have the financial support to make it happen? An idea like:

– Collect new children’s books for children in foster care
– Add universally accessible playground equipment at your local elementary school
– Create a database of service providers who work with children with special needs in your area
– Offer a “Craft Camp” for preschoolers with a military parent who is currently deployed

Well, the Kindermusik Good Beginnings Grant Program is just for you! Anyone can apply for a Good Beginnings Grant. (Note: you must be 18 or older and live in the U.S. or Canada.)

At Kindermusik, we always say “a good beginning never ends.” Our worldwide network of Kindermusik educators will tell you that nothing compares to getting a child off to a good start. We’ve been doing it for 30 years, but now it’s YOUR turn! We are looking for parents, teachers, individuals, organizations, schools, or small businesses with a passion for making a child’s life better.

Our Good Beginnings Grants are your chance to put $1,000 toward a project that will make a difference in the lives of children. The project can be education, playful, musical, or whatever!

From now until December 16 we will be accepting applications. Then, starting in early January the public will vote on their favorite ideas! Get your friends and family to vote (and keep voting each day) to better your chances of winning. The top five vote getters will have their projects funded.

    1. I know, Cliona. We sincerely apologize for that. Of course, we really wanted to do open this program up to all our friends around the world, but legal guidelines and restrictions prevented us from doing that. We simply had to make an exception for the program and only do it in the U.S. and Canada. Hopefully our international friends understand.

      Thanks for the comment!

  1. What is an “employee owner”? I am a licensed Kindermusik instructor. Do I check not affiliated with Kindermusik International when applying for the grant.

    1. Hi Amy! Sorry for the confusion on that one. Yes, you check “not affiliated”. Employee owners are those of us who are employed directly by Kindermusik International. There’s just a small handful of us. That does not apply to Kindermusik educators. Hope this helps!
