The COVID-19 pandemic continues to hit the music and performing industry hard. With a generous grant from Spotify and matching donations from our supporters, the the BMI Foundation was able to deliver emergency one-time grants to several instutions to help them continue to support composers and songwriters during this crisis. The following organziations are continung to make music accessible for all audiences and deliver music education programs to students around the country. Our thanks to Spotify and these organizations for helping to keep music alive in these difficult times.

"The ripple effect the support has had will be playing out for months and in the work of dozens of volunteers, teachers, performers and our little organization. Most important, it will give courage and confidence to dozens of composers in the coming year. It is like oxygen. Thank you."- Composers Online Institute
