Gift Of Music Foundation
The Sara J. Miller Gift of Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to creating greater accessibility to music programs, instruments, teachers, and the overall benefits of music education. It is our mission and passion to provide music enrichment opportunities for youth in our neighborhood. We refer to the endeavor as "the worthy challenge" with joyful rewards.
Sara J. Miller Gift of Music Foundation takes arts education and music back to school. Founded in 2009 as a response to an ongoing nationwide decline of funding and lack of prioritization for music education, our organization is diligently working to ensure access to music for the country’s at-risk youths. We do this by forming critical partnerships with music teachers, public schools and organizations to reinforce our core belief that music matters!
Through our foundation we are fully committed to arts education in schools. This program was started to assist in replacing music classes that have been eliminated by public schools.
Numerous studies have proven that students who learn music benefit in many other ways during this essential age window in a child’s overall development. Increases in cognitive and social skills are real. Students who learn music frequently perform better in academic areas and in the growth of crucial life skills.
As school budgets are stretched thin and arts-based programs are often the first to be eliminated or downsized, we believe it is a major priority to take action to keep music education in our schools. Our mission and passion are to bring the transformative power of the arts education back to schools. We choose to educate and inspire the next generation of musicians through the Sara J. Bass Gift of Music Foundation.
Donate an Instrument
Musical Instruments are the lifeblood of our mission. If you have a musical instrument of any type that is no longer being used, donate it to The Gift of Music Foundation. We’ll ensure it contributes to our efforts to provide instruments to kids who may not otherwise be able to afford them.
