The Fender Music Foundation

If I had $20,000 and six months of free time the foundation I'd donate to is the Fender Music Foundation. What they do is provide funding and resources, like instruments, for music programs across America so kids and adults are able to experience what it is to learn and play music. Their mission statement is that they believe that music participation is an essential element to an enduring society and I agree completely. This program is important to me because I know how much learning to play music can change you. I've become a completely different person as a result of the confidence learning an instrument and playing in a band has given me and I think a program that fights to give underprivileged people that same opportunity is a worthwhile one.


  1. I think this is a good charity because music is a big part of most people lives, especially for mine.

  2. I think that this is a very important point. Everyone can enjoy music, not everyone can make music. I took piano lessons when I was really young but didn't want to do the work and stick with it. Sorry to say I don't know how to play. I think that every individual should learn the very basics about music and this seems to be a good organization to support. Nice Ryan! :-)

  3. Good point I dont think we hear enough about music anymore, it can build confidence like you said, and give kids an opportunity to be involved in something
