Charity Spotlight: Save the Music

Access to arts and music has been proven to lead to any number of benefits for young people, but all too many students are unable to access these programs. For over 25 years, Save the Music Foundation has been working to change that and to ensure that as many students as possible can experience the life-changing power of music education.

 

The nonprofit Save the Music Foundation supports music education through three primary mechanisms: donating instruments and music, providing much-needed support systems for teachers, and advocating for music education on a broader scale. So far, Save the Music has helped support over 2,000 schools – and counting – with grants and other support for music education programs.

 

A full 76% of all spending from Save the Music goes directly towards supporting music programs in partner communities, meaning more of donors’ dollars have a direct impact on students. The foundation’s programs support music education all through K-12, ranging from early childhood development up through programs for high schoolers – even grants for producing, songwriting, DJ’ing, music tech, and more! Access to these programs not only gives students (and teachers) access to creative opportunities and outlets, but also contributes to positive outcomes like improved academic success, satisfaction, and emotional well-being. The power of music is unmistakable, and Save the Music is dedicated to ensuring that more communities have the support they need to reap the many benefits.

 

“The Save the Music Foundation holds special significance for me, as it is committed to revitalizing and sustaining music programs in schools,” says Madison Rountree, Director of Business Development at Blue Rock Search. “In the face of budget constraints that often prioritize essential courses over non-essential ones like music, the foundation collaborates with public school districts, offering grants for instruments, technology, and essential resources. Their admirable mission aims to ensure that every child, regardless of socioeconomic status, can experience the enriching benefits of music education.”
