The NAMM Foundation funds grants, research and advocacy in support of music education
Creating a World of Music Making
We envision a world in which the joy of music making is a precious element of daily living for everyone; a world in which 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.
Help us bring the gift of music making into someone’s life by making a donation today.

Together, We Can Do More
The NAMM Foundation-Changing Lives One Note At a Time
Country Club Hills School District 160
In April 2017, Country Club Hills School District 160 was one of three school districts selected to receive a NAMM Foundation-sponsored two-day residency with the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, a state-of-the-art mobile video and recording studio and a Support Music Community Forum that brought national recognition to the school district’s music education program; the community forum can be viewed here.
The NAMM Foundation was so impressed with the commitment to music education along with student performances during the forum that we donated additional funding to support a drumline program at Meadowview Intermediate School.
The NAMM Foundation is supported by passionate people just like you...who believe in the transformative powers of making music and the vital importance of music education for all children.
