Music Event Fund Continues to Accept Applications

The Music Event Fund application is open and continues to accept applications. With a continually changing environment related to COVID-19, nonprofits can apply for a variety of unique events, including virtual events. Applicants must apply at least 60 days prior to the event. If you are requesting support for an event involving social gathering, you must speak to your public safety plans and protocols in your application. Please be sure to carefully review the Music Event Fund guidelines before applying as all other guidelines remain in effect.

Bohemian Foundation believes that live music is an important part of vibrant communities. Live music events animate public life, foster strong community relationships, strengthen local economies and promote cultural diversity.

Music Event Fund is a competitive grantmaking program that encourages nonprofit organizations to present live music to strengthen communities. Grants of up to $2,500 are available to support single-day events that include popular contemporary music as an integral part of the event. Grant funds are only for artist fees and production costs.

Organizations located in Larimer and Weld counties may apply for funds at least 60 days in advance of the event date. Applications will be accepted while funds are available.
