OMTA & MTNA Foundations
The OMTA Foundation supports MusicLink and other worthy projects recommended by the state President and the Foundation Chair. Contributions to this fund are always welcome.
If you would like to give to either of these funds, please contact the Foundation Chair.
When you make a contribution to the MTNA FOUNDATION FUND, you are helping us work for a more musical tomorrow through programs that nurture the creation, performance, study and teaching of music.
Young students are recognized for their pursuit of excellence in performance and composition through the MTNA Student Competitions. MTNA supports the creation of new music through its Composer Commissioning Program. MTNA state-affiliated associations commission a work that is entered into the Distinguished Composer of the Year Competition. The winning composition is premiered at the MTNA National Conference.
Individuals who have made significant contributions to the art of music and the profession of music teaching are recognized through the MTNA Achievement Award, the Distinguished Service Award, the Frances Clark Keyboard Pedagogy Award and the MTNA Teacher of the Year Award. Authors are rewarded for their literary contributions with the American Music Teacher Article of the Year Award.
The Teacher Enrichment Grant program enables teachers to apply for grants to fund further musical study and educational or research projects. The Studio Teacher Fellowship is given to an independent music teacher to assist in developing and enhancing a newly established studio.
The Collegiate Chapter of the Year Award recognizes an outstanding collegiate chapter, its advisor and members for showing an exceptional level and depth of activities. MTNA local-affiliated associations may apply for grants for projects that benefit teachers, their students and their communities.
You can contribute to this fund at the fundraiser held at the annual OMTA Conference or you can contribute directly to MTNA Foundation on their web site. If you wish to donate money in support of the current OMTA candidate for Foundation Fellow, be sure to indicate the name of the candidate when you make your donation online.
