Grants to this Grantee
for a capital project  
Women’s Audio Mission (WAM) is dedicated to the advancement of women and girls in music production and the recording arts, a field in which women are chronically invisible and represent fewer than 5% of the sector. Founded in San Francisco in 2003, WAM provides free and low-cost recording-arts training to more than 250 girls and women each year in the world’s only professional recording studio run entirely by women. The organization lost its lease on its facility and recently purchased a new studio. WAM is now engaged in a $2 million capital campaign over two years. With the grant, WAM will surpass 60% of its fundraising goals to establish its first permanent home.
