The Gift of Music Foundation is a nonprofit organization that relies on a variety of funding sources to ensure that we can continue to make music accessible to underserved children.

As our program grows to include more music educators, more musical instruments and more students in these after school classes, we need your help.   For just $20,  you will be sponsoring 1 child to participate in our music program and enjoy access to an instrument, instruction, and music for an entire month.  

Give that same $20 each month as a “Sustainer” and you ensure that this student has the gift of music for the entire school year!

Our After School program operational costs vary depending on the number of students enrolled, the number of instruments required and the number music teachers per program. A typical After School Program consists of up to 30 students, 2 music teachers and 20+ instruments. The costs associated for activating our program in new schools in under-served neighborhoods range from $3,500 to $5,000 per semester, or $7,000 to $10,000 per school year.

Pledge a one time or recurring gift of any amount and help us make music education accessible to children one child at a time. Give the gift of music.

In honor of the late Jordan Dickerson, the Gift of Music is proud to receive donations that honor the memory of this talented and caring musician.  Contribute directly to the cause he loved, in cooperation with the Jordan Dickerson “Share The Music” Foundation.


Jordan was a self-taught guitarist and piano player and possessed an incredible ability to sing and perform locally. Unfortunately, Jordan battled addiction and lost his battle Christmas Eve, 2015. His love for music continued until his passing and this foundation’s purpose is to spread the Gift of Music to those without means to pay for an instrument or music lessons. We strive to keep the legacy of Jordan’s love for music, his incredible spirit, and his impact in the community alive.
