School children are the principal beneficiaries of our funds. In the last past five years, we have funded programs bringing music education to more than 111,225 kids, both in the seven-county metropolitan area and throughout the state of Minnesota, western Wisconsin and eastern North Dakota. These students attend a wide range of schools in our area, both public and private, and come from every grade level.
Establishing a presence for music education in schools has never been easy. TCOG is proud to work with a variety of organizations who are creating programs that support music education. Twice each year (Fall and Winter), we review applications for education grants.
Grant Applications for Fall 2023 Programs Are Open and Due August 31st. Grant applications will be reviewed mid-September. Application information at bottom of this page.
