Music education in New Hampshire’s public schools is getting a boost from the David M. Brooks Music Fund.
Brooks, of Bedford, was a U.S. Army veteran who had worked in the printing industry — and who loved music. He left a bequest in his will to create the fund, which will distribute up to $175,000 annually in perpetuity for the teaching of light classical music and voice in New Hampshire grammar schools, high schools, colleges and universities.
The New Hampshire Music Educators Association is working with the Foundation to advise grantmaking, and grants will be focused on districts with the greatest need.
For more information, contact Peter Benson, Charitable Foundation senior program officer, at 800-464-6641 ext. 271 or Peter.Benson@nhcf.org.
