The Narda & Phil Martin Family Grant

The Narda & Phil Martin Family Grant has been established in loving memory of Narda Rignault Martin, dedicated to music education, and in support of the We Are All Music Foundation (WAAM). This grant will help keep music alive by providing instruments, helping with mentorship and career development, fostering creativity, and inspiring at-risk youth.

Narda’s life was guided by music, her magnum opus being her marriage to Phil Martin, and the legacy of their love: Sean, Jake, Luke, and Hays Martin. Narda always believed in giving back and believed that music was the magical art form and language that unites us and gives joy to our lives. It is hoped that Narda’s memory and spirit of giving will help light the path for generations of musicians nurtured by WAAM.
