about us

The Helping Music Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides financial support, mentorship, and resources to Nashville's talented music creators. The organization was created by Logan Crowell, who noticed a lack of support and resources for musicians in the Nashville area.

The Helping Music Foundation currently supports independent emerging music creators with two grant programs: the HOME Scholarship and the Creator Grant. (Creator Grants are currently only available through Songtank and Gift of Music Events).
