This project will save us $4,390 , allowing us to deliver our program to three new memory care communities and will provide around 80 individuals suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia with the music they love.

What We Need

  • Grant Template outlining the Organization’s mission, strategic plan, activities and budget
  • Tips and suggestions on customizing Grant Template for specific grants

How This Will Help

To start out, right now we are in desperate need of a general Grant Application Template that we can refer to moving forward. We do not have any experience in grant writing and this is a huge void in our organization. Also, customizing our Grant Template is certainly a next step. We have a strong identity and know what sets us apart, but are not familiar with the ins and outs of structuring this message.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a one pager which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have previous written grants and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

Music Is Our Weapon. The name and the brand itself is a huge amount of character. We fight for life and we are armed with music.
