Middle School Music Grant

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What typically causes a Grant Request to be disallowed?

  • Incomplete Grant Request Form.
  • The Foundation was unable to communicate with the Grantee (teacher) via email.
  • Failure to respond to follow-up emails provided to the Grantee from the Foundation.
  • The Grant Request was received from an unqualified or non-public school.
  • More than one Grant Request was received from the same school.
  • The proposed use of the funds is not compliant with the Purpose, Guidelines and Conditions of the Grant.
  • The Grant Request Form was completed or submitted by someone other than a middle school music teacher.
  • A Grantee having failed to meet the Grant Conditions during a previous school year and who has not resolved the default with the Program Administrator.
  • The yearly Grant quota has been filled.

2. What will impede the Grantee (teacher) from receiving emails from the Foundation?

  • Email servers frequently do not deliver outside emails to a recipient’s Inbox if the sender has not been identified as a “safe sender”.  The Grantee (teacher) must take the necessary steps to ensure delivery, which is typically accomplished by adding the sender’s email address (jgreco@prmfoundation.org) to the school’s “acceptable” email list or address book.

3. What should I do if I forgot to include some information on my Music Grant Request and want to modify it?

  • Promptly email the Program Administrator, Jan Greco, at jgreco@prmfoundation.org. (Do not submit another Grant Request Form.)

4. My Grant Request was approved but I didn’t receive the Grant funds within 21 days thereafter. What should I do?

5. Can some of the three required performances take place after the end of the school year?

  • No. However, additional performances are encouraged and can be held at any time/place of the Grantee’s choosing.

6. I have a large number of students. Can I just take my jazz band or show choir?

  • Put forth your best efforts to provide the maximum number of students (as performers as well as observers) with the profound social-growth experience they will gain during the post-performance visitations with the senior audience.

7. May performances be held at the school if I have too many students to perform at a senior facility?

8. If my school was awarded a Music Grant in the previous school year, is my school eligible to participate again this year?

12. Does the Foundation have a Facebook page?
