Maren Morris has donated $70,000 to the band program at East Nashville Magnet High School through her HEROES Fund charity.
The school plans to use the funds to purchase instruments, uniforms, tuxedos and gowns.
“Now that I am where I am, it gives me so much joy to give back money to the spark that enflamed my interest as a creative human being,” Morris told The Tennessean via email.
She added, “With so much uncertainty for public schools this year during COVID, I wanted East Nashville Magnet to have one less worry for their fine arts department.”
Morris’ HEROES Fund is a Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee partnership that supports music education in public schools. Morris funds the program with proceeds from meet-and-greet events on tour.
