Proceeds from GRAMMY Charity Online Auctions provide essential support for the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares. Under the banner of GRAMMY in the Schools®, the GRAMMY Foundation produces a range of distinct education programs across the country throughout the year that serve high school students and their schools, including GRAMMY Camp®, GRAMMY Career Day, GRAMMY Camp — Jazz Session, and GRAMMY Signature Schools. In addition, the GRAMMY Foundation and The Recording Academy® have partnered to present an annual Music Educator Award™ to recognize the significant role of teachers in shaping their students' musical experiences. The GRAMMY Foundation also offers preservation and advancement initiatives, fosters dialogue about compelling issues facing the music industry, supports projects that increase the understanding of music and its role in society, and raises public awareness about the urgent need to preserve our nation's recorded sound legacy. These programs include the Entertainment Law Initiative®, the Grant Program with funding generously provided by The Recording Academy, the GRAMMY Living Histories program, and the GRAMMY Foundation Legacy Concert (formerly the Music Preservation Project).
MusiCares ensures that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need by providing programs and services, including emergency financial assistance, educational workshops, flu shots, hearing tests, and medical/dental screenings. The MusiCares MAP Fund® allows access to addiction recovery treatment and sober living resources for members of the music community. The Safe Harbor Room® program, weekly addiction support groups and the MusiCares Sober Touring Network provide ongoing recovery support.
