MUSICAL GRANT PROGRAM
FOR PERFORMERS, COMPOSERS, AND PRESENTERS
About the Musical Grant Program (MGP)
The MGP awards grants to support the creative musical activity of San Francisco Bay Area performers,
composers and presenters whose projects focus specifically on music for the small ensemble.
The MGP raises the profile of local artists and creates opportunities for audiences to experience
the rich diversity of music in the Bay Area. SFFCM raises funds from large local foundations and
awards grants annually through a competitive process. Awardees are selected by a panel of
independent music experts unassociated with the board or staff of SFFCM.
