The Bluegrass Trust Fund (the "Trust") was established in 1987 as a means to offer financial assistance to bluegrass music professionals in time of emergency need. Patterned after similar entities in the music world, the Trust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable institution governed by an autonomous five-person board of trustees appointed by the International Bluegrass Music Association.

The Foundation for Bluegrass Music (a separate 501c3 non-profit organization) believes strongly in passing along bluegrass music to the next generation of fans and musicians.  One of the Foundation's goals - and ours, too! - is to help educators (elementary through university level, including home schooling parents) to become more “bluegrass aware.”

The International Bluegrass Music Museum is the world’s only facility dedicated to the history and preservation of the international history of bluegrass music.
