Listen Better Grants

Listen Better allows Sonos to provide small grants (between $5,000-15,000) to grassroots nonprofit organizations working on one of our five key objectives. To start, we’ve committed $1.5 million in unrestricted grants over the next three years to fund groups around the world. We’ve awarded our inaugural round of Listen Better grants (each worth $15,000) to the six organizations who joined our roundtable this summer and who will help us identify the issues at the heart of our future grassroots grant giving: Access Now, Article 19, Creative Time, Freemuse, the Future of Music Coalition and Index on Censorship. These groups have generously agreed to continue advising Sonos on key priorities and strategy. To continue to promote and protect the future of music, we want to hear from you. Please use this link to tell us about your work.

Applications: We will begin taking applications from eligible nonprofits interested in receiving funding from Sonos in early 2018.

Guidelines: We will support small organizations working at the local level. In addition to matching our key mission objectives, groups must meet a set of criteria in order to receive funding.
