Grammy Foundation

The GRAMMY Foundation influences the lives of young people by opening the windows of opportunity that music can provide for their futures. Our nationwide programs range from afternoon sessions with artists such as GRAMMY Career Day, to longer intensive experiences such as GRAMMY Camp and GRAMMY Camp — Jazz Session, all designed to bring youths together with working professionals. GRAMMY in the Schools programs also recognize excellence in music education through cash prizes and scholarships for schools across the country with our GRAMMY Signature Schools program.

Going Green

The Recording Academy has worked with RideAmigos to set up a ride-sharing widget for the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards. This service is intended to help attendees be more eco-friendly, reduce congestion, and save money traveling while traveling to/from the event.


“As the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammy’s twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame, but if you just focus on the work, and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there — and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.” — Taylor Swift, accepting the award for 1989, winner of album of the year.


In an era when much of the prevailing cultural dialogue revolves around race relations and personal empowerment, the big winners at the 58th GRAMMY Awards reflected the currency of the times.
