THE POWER OF MUSIC
There are thousands of music nonprofits; we provide grants to the best-in-class focused on Education, Health and Wellness, and Underserved Communities.
EDUCATION AND OPPORTUNITY
For years, music education has been the victim of school budget constraints; they are the last classes to be added and the first classes to be cut. Music is proven to provide academic, social, and personal benefits to students. It is a platform for success through mentorship and educational tools.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Studies show that listening to music can benefit overall well-being, help regulate emotions, create happiness, bring relaxation and improve quality of life. The therapeutic attributes of music supports mental health, aids in suicide prevention, and simply provides hope to someone feeling despair.
It is imperative that all communities receive access to the joy and wonder that music can bring. Music promotes social connectivity, strengthens communities, fights poverty, generates unity, and serves those who otherwise feel forgotten.
