“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”- Victor Hugo
Through The Gifts of Music, you’re providing greater access to music education opportunities empowering young people in Maine to express themselves productively and creatively. We put “like new” instruments into the hands of deserving students who might not otherwise be able to participate in their school band program. With your support, we help send Maine music students to summer music camps to expand their education. When funding permits, The Gifts of Music creates community music education opportunities for Maine youth such as the YMusic program.
When music education opportunities are reduced for our children, there is a direct impact on the entire music industry.
The Gifts of Music has been officially recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3, tax-exempt non-profit organization in Maine and is a member of the Maine Association of Non-Profits.
The Gifts of Music receives no government funding and relies solely on the generosity of individual donors who value music education and our youth. TGOM graciously accepts your tax-deductible cash contributions for our student music camp scholarships, the instrument refurbishing and gifting program, music educator grants, and community music education programs as funds allow.
