Impact, Music for All’s annual report and resource for education, advocacy and performance information for fiscal year 2011 (March 1, 2010 - February 28, 2011), is now available for download here.
As the current fiscal year comes to a close, Music for All has much for which we can be thankful. Most of all, we are thankful for friends and supporters like you who embrace and support our mission to create, provide and expand positively life-changing experiences through music for all.
In 2011, we took Music for All, Bands of America and Orchestra America programs to 11 states and drew participants from 30 other states and three foreign countries. Almost 3,000 students and teachers participated in the Music for All Summer Symposium and Music for All National Festival, and another 70,000+ students participated in Bands of America events before more than a quarter million fans, families and supporters. We provided counsel as well as access to our advocacy tools and resources for hundreds of teachers, parents and students who saw their access and opportunities to participate in music education and performance threatened by educational budget cuts.
We know that you believe in our ideals and programs, and we ask and hope we can continue to have, deserve and count on your support. As we approach the end of the year (February 29, 2012), Music for All has reached 97% of our fundraising goal, and we need your help to continue to strengthen our programs and educational experiences. A gift from you will give us the significant boost we need to reach our goal of influencing students and educators through our programs and providing Positively Life-Changing experiences through music for all. More importantly, your gift provides leadership and inspires others – individuals, corporations and foundations alike – to join in and support our cause.
Support you provide now will help ensure that we can continue to serve at a high level and execute key objectives for 2012 and beyond. To donate to Music for All, donate online, or send your donation to:
