Legacy Grants recognize the programs and organizations that best represent ZFF’s mission, and values. Since 1921, Community Music Center has helped people of all ages and backgrounds make music, no matter their skill level or their ability to pay. In its near 100-year history, CMC has served hundreds of thousands of students in the Victorian building in the Mission District they call home. CMC is currently expanding their facilities to include a second building next door; the newly integrated campus will dramatically increase the space available for classes, lessons and concerts, as well as the number of faculty, students and audiences served. CMC is a natural nominee for the Zellerbach Family Foundation Legacy Grant; they are an excellent example of the mission and values of the organization and have a demonstrated track record of success within their community.
