The Zildjian Family Opportunity Fund

The Zildjian Family Opportunity Fund is a permanently endowed trust managed and administered by the Percussive Arts Society. The purpose of the Zildjian Family Opportunity Fund is to provide funding for community based percussion programs in underrepresented neighborhoods. Utilizing the diverse group of PAS educators and performers, these programs will be presented at no charge to participants in accessible locations such as schools, community centers, parks, senior living facilities, or libraries. 


Applications will be accepted from current PAS members only. Awards will be granted based on artistic and educational quality, content of presentation, and the demonstrated ability of the presenter to carry out the proposal as submitted. Multiple proposals will be accepted for requested awards ranging from $100–$500.


Please direct all questions to Joshua Simonds, PAS Executive Director, at or 317-974-4488.
