As of January 1, 2020 we have given $100,000 in music scholarships. We've done that with the help of hundreds of individuals & musicians (some truly world class) who not only love music but understand that music is the force that brings us together regardless of our race, religion or politics. That is the power of music. We all enter this world hearing the same instrument...the beat of our mother's heart.

Please consider a donation to Music for Humanity here: You can also send a check to Music for Humanity, PO Box 359, Chester, NY 10918.

All donations go towards the scholarship fund. Scholarships are awarded annually to 4-5 individuals who are music majors at an accredited college or university in the United States. If you know someone who is eligible they can apply online here:

All donations are tax-deductible. Thanks for your generosity!!

Music is the force that builds the invisible bridges, roads and tunnels that connect our hearts & souls. We need that more than ever. More music truly means a better world for all of us. We'll make sure your donation will help a young aspiring musician in the form of a scholarship to an accredited college or university. We choose outstanding musicians who can also be "ambassadors" for Music and Music for Humanity. Thanks again for your support!!
