Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls


The Stavros Niarchos Foundation has committed to supporting Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls (WMRC) over the next two years, including a challenge grant to help support our big move in 2019, plus additional staff to help expand our operations and in turn, the reach of our award-winning music education and social justice programs.

This grant is an exciting time for WMRC to engage our amazing community. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation will award us $140,000 over 2 years. This  includes support to add additional personnel to facilitate our year-round educational activities and everyday operations, as well as a challenge grant to raise money for relocation to our new Brooklyn headquarters, and our goal is $50,000.

Help us unlock an opportunity to open a new office space for the next generation of girls and gender nonconforming youth to create music, and discover their potential as leaders, community-builders, and social justice activists!
