Supporting the Moral Imperative of Music Education
The Spirit of Harmony Foundation supports the moral imperative of music education, weaving together the social, biological, economic, and academic benefits to young people who are involved in consistent instrument-based music lessons and performance. Our organization focuses on networking, as we help match the practical and varied needs of music education programs with the resources that will help them excel.
We believe in providing opportunities for personal development and self-expression through the support of music and music education for young people regardless of socioeconomic status, geographic location, or ability.
“I never waited for something to happen—I just went out and did it. I didn’t wait for acclaim or affirmation or anything like that. I always kept myself busy and wrote music. Some people think that success only comes through the front door, so they’re waiting at that door. Truth is, sometimes it comes in the back door, so don’t worry about it. Just keep busy and do what you’re meant to do. If you do that, it’ll all come together.”– Spirit of Harmony Foundation Founder and President Todd Rundgren in Guitar World, June 2015
Annual Fundraising Campaign
The Spirit of Harmony Foundation is pleased to announce our major Annual Giving Campaign. We need resources to help us bring the joy of music to children who would otherwise have no opportunity to learn how to play an instrument. This fundraising campaign offers some tantalizing and extremely limited-edition Thank You gifts for your donation, ranging from $10 donations to large corporate sponsorships. Thank you!
