IBMA Foundation Partners with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to Establish Endowment
The board of the IBMA Foundation (formerly the Foundation for Bluegrass Music) voted July 26 to move $50,000 of their undesignated funds into a new endowment managed by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, based in Nashville. Income earned by this endowment will return to the IBMA Foundation in perpetuity to help fund grants for educational programs and events that support the future of bluegrass music by introducing the music to upcoming generations of musicians and fans.
The IBMA Foundation awards $15,000 in grants annually, including $3,000 in mini-grants that help pay bands who present educational bluegrass music programs for children at schools and camps.
