The NMPA SONGS (Supporting Our Next Generation Of Songwriters) Foundation has announced a new partnership with She Is The Music (STIM), a nonprofit dedicated to increasing the number of women working in music.
SONGS is providing a donation of $100,000 to She Is The Music to be spread over four years in $25,000 installments. The announcement was made yesterday at NMPA’s Annual Meeting in New York City with STIM Committee Members Carianne Marshall and Ann Mincieli accepting the donation.
“She Is The Music founder Alicia Keys unveiled her pioneering new platform to promote female songwriters, producers, engineers and more at our annual meeting last year, so it was fitting that we announced our partnership on the same stage yesterday,” said David Israelite, President of the NMPA SONGS Foundation. “This $100,000 donation is critical in order to grow in-studio professional mentoring programs as well as other opportunities for women and we couldn’t be happier to be involved in this growing movement.”
