Grants from the Martha Lee Cain Tranby Music Enrichment Fund are not matching grants and do not require matching funds. If the budget for your project(s) shows financial requirements exceeding the amount of your request, however (as many do), we would like to have a reasonable idea of how you intend to raise the additional funds to produce your project.
