Be a Part of The NAMM Foundation

“We envision a world in which the joy of making music is a precious element of daily living for everyone; where every child has a deep desire to learn music and a recognized right to be taught; and in which every adult is a passionate champion and defender of that right.”

The NAMM Foundation supports programs that advance opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to make music.

NAMM members have many opportunities to PARTICIPATE, promote, celebrate and support music education in their own communities.

NAMM Foundation projects and programs inspire and grow music making opportunities, and the market, as part of our unique Circle of Benefits business model, which channels trade show, membership revenues and donations into targeted efforts that bring us closer to our vision.

Programs such as the Best Communities for Music Education and Make Music Day strive to ensure music education is essential for all children, and promote its vital role in the health and wellness for people at every age.

NAMM's annual Fly-in and Coalition on Coalitions are other ways that members can PARTICIPATE and ADVOCATE as well as develop skills as advocacy leaders and champions.

And, to celebrate all these efforts that unite us as music education champions, you can DONATE to expand and strengthen the work of The NAMM Foundation. Donations can also honor your legacy or the memory of others that have inspired and helped you achieve your goals and success in the music industry.

Working together, we can amplify our efforts to ensure every person has the opportunity to learn and grow with music. The future of music begins with you, and through our collective effort, we will continue to work toward the vision of the world we believe in – a world of music makers.
