Attention music teachers: Grants available February 25, 2014
Music teachers in Solano County’s public and private schools are being invited to apply to the Solano Community Foundation for grants of up to $1,000 to support music programs and projects in classes from kindergarten to 12th grade, said Stephanie Wolf, chief executive officer of the foundation.
Grants are for the 2014-15 academic year, Wolf said, and can be used to buy musical instruments, sheet music, uniforms and accessories and expenses that are connected directly to music practice and performance.
Donald and Rose Marie Wong of Vacaville established the Wong Endowment Fund at Solano Community Foundation, specifically to underwrite the grants, Wolf said.
