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.
