5 Ways YOU Can Help Music Education Today



By: Chris Monroe
Executive Director
The Gift of Music Foundation

There’s a simple philosophy that drives our Foundation:  “Music Matters.”   Like you, we kept watching the same story play out over and over again– music and fine arts programs being severely cut or even eliminated in our schools.  We knew that something had to change.  That’s why The Gift of Music Foundation was created.  If you believe in our mission as strongly as we do, then there are six things you can do today to help our Foundation continue to grow.  Every share, every instrument, every dollar adds up.  If everyone does just a little, those combined efforts will quickly become a National force for music and arts education.  Will you help us today?


Facebook1.  “Like” us on Facebook:   Make sure you follow and “like” us on Facebook, share our posts, and share our page with your friends. Help us continue to grow our following by inviting your friends to like us on Facebook too!  This doesn’t cost anything but a few minutes of your time, and will help continue to expand our reach and exposure. 




2.  Sign up for our E-Newsletter:    Stay up to date with exciting news from The Gift of Music Foundation by signing up for our e-newsletter.

4.  Donate your Time & Talents:   We are still in need of volunteers, especially in the communications and marketing department. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Allison O’Shields   aoshields@giftofmusic.org   and she will help get you started!Volunteer Hands SM





Cash Box Sm5.  Invest in our Mission, Help a Musician:     Nearly every dollar you invest goes directly to help a young musician or music program, and also helps continue our Mission. There are many ways for you to give:

For as little as $9/Month (that’s just 0.29 cents per day) you can become a SUSTAINER. This is an automatic and painless way to help our foundation month after month. Our goal is 1,000 sustainers at this level or higher.
