ACM LIFTING LIVES® ANNOUNCES
2020 GRANT CYCLE
SUBMISSIONS OPEN NOW THROUGH OCTOBER 1
ENCINO, CA (September 3, 2019) – ACM Lifting Lives® announced a call for submissions for the 2020 Grant Cycle, beginning today, September 3, 2019. Through grants, ACM Lifting Lives provides funding to programs that promote healing with a musical connection, to further the mission of improving lives through the power of music.
Submissions will be accepted beginning today, Tuesday, September 3, 2019 and ending on Tuesday, October 1, 2019. For information on program guidelines and how to submit, please visit www.acmliftinglives.org. Funding decisions will be determined and recipients will be notified in November 2019.
“We are proud to continue supporting the vital work being done by so many organizations,” said Lyndsay Cruz, Executive Director of ACM Lifting Lives. “It’s inspiring for us to hear the stories and see the progress that is continuously being implemented through our grants and we look forward to reaching and impacting so many more through the healing power of music.”
ACM Lifting Lives has refined the scope of the grant cycle from past cycles in effort to deepen involvement and impact in the music and health space. The 2020 Grant Cycle has a narrower focus on music therapy and health programs that facilitate healing through music. With these new parameters, ACM Lifting Lives can streamline giving and create a heartier impact in this arena. ACM Lifting Lives has given to several deserving organizations across the country through its grant cycle in the past and looks forward to continuing to elevate organizations that align with its mission.
