In 2008, Friends of Music at Guilford (FOMAG) launched a Music Enrichment Program for Guilford Central School, prompted both by music budget cuts and by a desire for students in the upper grades to make music a lifelong passion as they move on to middle and high school. The Max Y. Seaton Trust has awarded six annual grants of $1,500 to support this program, but the remainder of each year’s $3,500 budget has been FOMAG's responsibility.
