The PTG Foundation
Piano Technicians Guild Foundation is formed to support the goals of The Piano Technicians Guild (PTG) by preserving and displaying historical materials and providing scholarships and grants for piano performance, study and research.
Since 1982, the PTG Foundation has given an annual scholarship to members of the Music Teachers National Association. This scholarship is presented to a certified piano teacher for advanced studies. The Music Teachers National Association has a standing committee to select the recipient for the Foundation scholarship. For an application visit www.mtna.org.
The PTG Foundation sponsors scholarships for Associate members of PTG to help them advance their education. The scholarship pays for registration at the annual convention and the cost of the last exam necessary to complete their Registered Piano Technicians certification. Applications must be received by April 1 each year. Click here to download an application, or call the PTG Home Office at 913-432-9975 to request a copy.
The PTG Foundation established a Disaster Relief Fund immediately following the Katrina disaster in New Orleans. The Disaster Relief Fund is used to give aid to PTG members who are affected by natural disasters such as tornados, earthquakes, and flooding. Any member may request aid for themselves or another member by contacting the PTG Home Office at (913) 432-9975. You may make a tax deductible contribution to the PTGF Disaster Relief Fund through the PTG Home Office, 4444 Forest Ave, Kansas City, KS 66106.
The PTG Foundation opened its museum during the 1994 Annual Convention which was held in Kansas City, MO. Members of the PTG and their families toured the museum during its Grand Opening. Museum displays include antique piano building tools, historical pictures of the PTG and the piano industry, historical manuscripts, books and documents, unique pianos, and piano components that have historical significance to the piano industry.
As a non-profit 501(c) (3) the Foundation relies on private contributions to these efforts alive. Tax deductible contributions may be made in honor of individuals by sending them to the PTG Home Office at 4444 Forest Ave, Kansas City, KS 66106.
