Music Strings Together Communities: This Week In Daily Giving

07/20/2016 09:28 pm ET Updated Dec 06, 2017

Each week at The Pollination Project, we shine a spotlight on seven recent recipients of seed grants, allowing their visions to become a reality. This week we have individuals who are constructing environmentally friendly spaces for the community and individuals who introduce youth to the world of music. From outdoor spaces to professional media studios, our grantees are affording the marginalized a space to shine.

Congratulations to our seven recent recipients!
