Music Educational Outreach
IAMF is a liberal organization in that it does not discriminate for or against any people. In order to do this it is imperative that IAMF maintain an endowment designed to fund private music training for underprivileged people. Since this endowment is new and not yet large enough to fund outreach, it will rely on contributions from philanthropic organizations, businesses and individuals like you to build it.
When a young child acquires the desire to learn to play a musical instrument, the natural process that follows is that 1) the parents rent or purchase an instrument, 2) pay for private lessons and 3) transport the child to and from lessons, recitals, performances and workshops. Children both rich and poor acquire the desire to learn a musical instrument. Those who are financially secure follow the 3 steps above without hesitancy. But underprivileged children do not enjoy such a luxury. Most of them simply never get to learn. This is where the IAMF Music Educational Outreach endowment becomes vital in the lives of many people.
There are 2 ways in which you can contribute to the Music Educational Outreach endowment.
- You can contribute money. All money contributed to the IAMF Music Educational Outreach endowment is used strictly for that fund only.
- You can contribute "in kind" donations. In kind donations must be limited to musical instruments in good condition. Know that instruments contributed to IAMF will be used for underprivileged youth in the Music Educational Outreach program.
