A Foundation for Youth, Education, ...and Pride!
The MARIACHI USA Foundation was created
to provide a vehicle with which to nurture the proliferation
of Mexican culture through education in music and performing
arts in school based programs.
Since 1990 the Foundation has provided over $200,000 in grants
for music and vocal instruction and instrument purchases for
grammar, middle and high schools in California primarily in
the Los Angeles City and County areas but has also extended
to Texas and Arizona.
The success stories of the grants program abound with examples
of increased academic achievements as well as personal confidence,
understanding of cultural diversity, improvement of family relationships,
discipline development, responsibility, accountability and the
experience ofcommunity involvement.
Each year, the Foundation receives new applications from schools
for implementation of Mariachi music programs. It is the Foundation’s
goal to continue providing grants to existing programs while
assisting in developing new programs throughout California.
We have established an outstanding track-record for effectively
and fairly delivering funds directly to schools for Mariachi
