We’ve been fortunate that the strong response to The Gift of Music Foundation’s mission has given us the opportunity to make an even bigger impact than we expected in our first year. Although we are based in Atlanta and our short-term plans are to focus most of our efforts in this area, we cannot ignore that the need for musical instruments and other support is everywhere. When we became aware of a particular program in Long Island, NY that could greatly benefit from some donated musical instruments, we did not hesitate. Thanks to connections made from our friends at Play It Right Music, we were able to supply much-needed help to the program at Hampton Bays Elementary School and give their music program a meaningful boost. Worth the trip – and one of our most proud success stories from our first year.
The Gift of Music Foundation is dedicated to providing instruments and program support to make sure that music education is there for the next generation. We can’t do it without the generous support of everyone. If you can help with a donation of an instrument, or of money to help fund our programs, please do it! Because Music Matters.
