NAMM Foundation's Best Communities for Music Education recognizes schools and districts for their comprehensive music education programs. Throughout the survey's 15-year history, many districts have reported that making the "Best Communities" list supports efforts to preserve and advance their music education programs. The surveys gauge funding, participation, facilities, and other factors that affect access to comprehensive music education.

In 2014, more than 2000 schools and districts participated resulting in a record number of designees. The NAMM Foundation designated 376 school districts as Best Communities for Music Education, while 96 individual schools earned the SupportMusic Merit Award for their commitment to providing students with access to comprehensive music education.
