Levitt Pavilions Issues CFA for 2016 Outdoor Music Concert Program
Levitt Pavillions

Levitt Pavilions is a national nonprofit that exists to strengthen the social fabric of America. The organization aims to empower communities to transform neglected outdoor spaces into welcoming destinations where the power of free, live music brings people together and invigorates community life.

To that end, Levitt Pavilions has issued a Call for Applications for its 2016 Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards program.

Matching grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded to a minimum of ten U.S.-based nonprofits or municipalities partnering with a nonprofit to present the Levitt AMP [Your City] Music Series, which involves a minimum of ten free outdoor concerts presented over ten consecutive weeks between April 1, 2016, and November 20, 2016.

To be eligible, all proposed Levitt AMP [Your City] Music Series must take place in 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 1 million. For towns or cities located within a metropolitan area with a population that exceeds 1 million, the town or city must be at least twenty-five miles from the metro area’s anchor city.

Applicants must demonstrate 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 also must demonstrate dollar-for-dollar matching funds from other sources such as foundations, municipalities, 501(c)(3) nonprofits, and/or businesses.

Online public voting in November will determine the top twenty finalists. Levitt Pavilions will then review the top twenty applications in December and announce the winners in January 2016.
