Hughes & Jones Music Fund 2022 Awards $127,019 to 31 School Music Programs

The Hughes & Jones Music Fund for Nevada Public Schools is pleased to announce the Clark and Washoe Counties Music Awards for 2022.  This grant cycle 34 proposals were submitted, with a total of $127,019.00 being awarded to 31 worthy school music programs. 

In 2006, Charles L. Hughes and Alvin C. Jones created the Hughes & Jones Music Fund with the sole purpose of funding musical instruments to Nevada’s public schools.  The goal was to make musical instruments available to students who might not otherwise be able to afford them and enable local schools to maintain the ownership for student use for years. By this process school music programs would remain strong and vital, and community events would have the benefit of local student talent.

The Hughes & Jones Music Fund grant cycles are:

  • Nevada rural counties in the spring of odd years
  • Clark and Washoe counties in the spring of even years

The 2022 awardees are:
