Since its inception in 2014, SpreadMusicNow has made over $1,500,000 in grants to music programs across the nation.

Facing the Crisis
at Hand

Confidence. Creativity. Collaboration. These are just some of the things that improve when a child participates in structured, rigorous music education.

Multiple studies have shown that students who study music develop stronger academic skills, and in general, enjoy a higher quality of life than peers who do not have access to music education. Unfortunately, cuts to arts education budgets have left many students with minimal exposure to music education. This trend has taken an especially harsh toll on high-need students, since school-based programs are often the only opportunity they have to receive music education.

What We Do

There are thousands of worthy music education programs that deserve support, and many nonprofit organizations out there doing great work in an effort to fill the void in music education for children.

Rather than reinventing the wheel, we support other nonprofits that supplement traditional classroom-based music education.

Furthermore, we support independent, community-based initiatives that provide engaging and innovative music instruction outside of the classroom.

Through this broad-based approach, we provide our donors with the confidence that their generosity offers the highest quality music education to the greatest number of underserved youth.

What
We Fund

We focus our funding on those organizations and programs whose organizational models contribute not simply to a child's musical skill, but to their ongoing development. We ask, "in addition to teaching kids music, what lasting impact will your program have on a child's overall development and growth into young adulthood?"

SpreadMusicNow's Next Chapter

SpreadMusicNow has always been about helping kids. Through music, we’ve worked to improve and transform the lives of underserved children, putting them on a path to a successful and enriching life. This has been an incredibly fulfilling mission and has allowed us to help thousands of children in communities across the nation.

In order to better sustain this pursuit, our vision had been to develop a stream of charitable revenue generated from live concert events, in partnership with our artist ambassadors. Unfortunately, due to the impact of COVID-19, this model is impracticable and unsustainable. Accordingly, we have decided to wind down the nonprofit corporation, SpreadMusicNow, Inc. (the events-based fundraising arm of BeFoundation’s SpreadMusicNow Fund) beginning on January 1, 2021.

The mission of the Fund remains the same, however, and will be better able to direct scarce resources to meet the music education needs of children and families.
