MUSIC is OUR LIFE, and OUR FUTURE!

As 2015 comes to a close, I’m reminded on a daily basis of all the ways that the students of Musicians Institute, the high schoolers that attend our Grammy Museum Music Education Programs, and local non-profits awardees rely on the support of those who understand the power of music education and the important role it plays in our lives. 

We’re proud to have just completed our best year of fund-raising ever, having brought in $114,000 in tax deductible donations!

These donations are directly awarded as scholarships to the students of Musicians Institute and fund our ongoing high school outreach programs.  We’ve awarded over $400,000 in scholarships since 2004, and have directly supported (both) the education, and musical inspiration for thousands of students over the last eleven years.

If you haven’t yet made a contribution to our scholarship fund, I invite you to join us by making a tax-deductible donation NOW to the Musicians Institute Student Scholarship fund administered by The Musicians Foundation.

-Beth Marlis, Executive Director
