Carmel PorchFest Inc. Grant Program

Learn more about the Carmel PorchFest Inc. Grant Program

The Carmel PorchFest Grant Program has been created to provide financial aid to students interested in the musical arts. The grants cover such items as new instruments, lessons, schooling, musical opportunities, etc. in exchange for volunteer hours.

How to Apply:

  • Students 6 – 18 years of age can apply for financial assistance in return for volunteering at our events held throughout the year.  Students age 13 and below will need a parent or guardian to volunteer with them. Once a student volunteers four hours at any combination of Carmel PorchFest, Inc. events, you will become eligible for the grant.  
  • To apply for a Carmel PorchFest, Inc. grant, sign up here
  • Sign up to volunteer at a Late Night on Main or Carmel PorchFest
  • After the student volunteers, the Board and Committee will review and/or approve applications.

To date, Carmel PorchFest has awarded 10 grants to deserving students in the community. Students used the grant for items such as; violin lessons, flute lessons, new instruments and music programs. We hope we can continue to help the youth in our community who are interested in music, as it is our mission to promote the value of music.
