Partners & Sponsors

The programs of the GRAMMY Foundation would not be possible without the generous support of our many partners and sponsors. Each year, these organizations provide the financial and human resources that are critical to the GRAMMY Foundation's success.

We would like to acknowledge those partners with a "Thank You" for all of their hard work in helping us to accomplish our mission:

Baldwin

Best Buy
Best Buy and the GRAMMY Foundation continue their innovative partnership joining the corporate resources and relationships of the leading consumer electronics retailer with the established music education programs and initiatives of The Recording Academy. Best Buy will continue to generate financial support for GRAMMY Foundation music education programs through the Best Buy Charity Classic, Sound Matters, the Best Buy Children’s Foundation, and Best Buy Mobile resources. To date, more than $1 million has been raised to support at-risk music education programs in schools across the country, as well as GRAMMY in the Schools initiatives aimed at exposing high school students to careers in music.

Since September 2010 the GRAMMY Foundation and Best Buy Mobile have partnered in an effort to support local high school music education programs. Celebrating the opening of every Best Buy Mobile store across the country, the GRAMMY Foundation will identify and select a local public high school music program to receive a GRAMMY Foundation Community Award of $2,000. To date, approximately $200,000 in grants has been distributed across approximately 200 schools. For a list of selected schools, click here.
