Levitt Foundation Issues CFA for 2018 Outdoor Music Concert Program

The Levitt AMP Music Series was created in 2014 by the Levitt Foundation, a pioneer in the creative placemaking movement. Levitt AMP brings the joy of free, live music to people of all ages and backgrounds living in small to mid-sized towns and cities, transforming neglected public spaces into thriving community destinations.

To that end, the foundation has issued a Call for Applications for its 2018 Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards program.

Grants of up to $25,000 in matching funds will be awarded to a minimum of ten U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, or municipalities partnering with a nonprofit, to present a minimum of ten free outdoor concerts presented over ten consecutive weeks between May 1 and November 15, 2018.

To be eligible, proposed Levitt AMP [Your City] Music Series must take place within the United States in small to midsized towns and cities with a population of up to 400,000 people and within a metropolitan area with a population of no more than one million. For towns or cities located within a metro area with a population that exceeds one million, the town or city must be at least twenty-five miles from the anchor city of the metro area.

In addition, applicants must display a successful track record of presenting professional quality concerts or community events, or apply with a partner organization or individual that has done so. Applicants must also demonstrate dollar-for-dollar matching funds from other sources such as foundations, municipalities, 501(c)(3) nonprofits, or businesses.

The foundation will host an informational webinars on July 18 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (PT). and August 23 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (PT).
