The Iguana Music Fund is an annual grant program predominantly funded by a generous anonymous donor, plus the help of Passim, sponsorships, and community donations.
Each year the Iguana Music Fund gives approximately $45,000 in grants to individual artists in amounts from $500 to $2,000 each. Grants are used for projects and expenses to aid in artists' career growth, and range from recording projects to community programs to specialized equipment or instruments.
The Iguana Music Fund was established in 2008 after a generous anonymous donation was given with the intention of helping artists pursue their musical goals. Artists often have the talent and ideas to create incredible music, but they do not always have the financial capacity to do so. To help musicians overcome financial limitations, the Iguana Music Fund awards annual grants to artists with a residential or tour-based affiliation to New England. Since 2008, more than $250,000 in grants has funded more than 140 projects.
