2020 MusiCounts TD Community Music Program Recipients Announced

MusiCounts is thrilled to announce that through the 2020 MusiCounts TD Community Music Program, $500,000 in musical instruments and equipment will be awarded to 37 community organizations across Canada. From Nunavut to Nova Scotia to downtown Vancouver; these funds will empower thousands of kids in all corners of Canada and give them the opportunity to experience the benefits of music education in their community. 

Congratulations to all the recipients! 

Check out this video of JUNO Award-winning artist Alessia Cara announcing the recipients:

This program is made possible through the generous support of TD Bank. TD believes that one of the best ways to support communities is by investing in music and helping build access to music, as a way to create shared experiences and learning for life. Here at MusiCounts we could not agree more, and we are honoured to work with TD on this impactful initiative. Since 2013, the MusiCounts TD Community Music Program has supported 214 community organizations with a total of 3.2 million in musical instruments and equipment. This has benefitted tens of thousands of kids, and enabled organizations to expand and grow their music programming in ways that would otherwise not be possible.
