We are very pleased to announce that as of mid-July, 2020 we have achieved nonprofit status with the IRS under article 501 (c ) (3)!
The purpose of The Village Music School Foundation is manifold. We seek to foster a love of music in its many forms through various avenues and projects. It is the nonprofit sister of The Village Music School, which also does business as Musical Associates.
First, the foundation will allow families who cannot afford the lessons that are provided through The Village Music School an opportunity to participate at a lower dollar figure.
The second area of operation will be providing a variety of services to charter schools and public schools which require a 501 (c ) (3) in place. Through the Foundation, The Village Music School staff will be able to provide early childhood music education and after school music education in districts that currently have that nonprofit requirement.
In addition, The Village Music School Foundation will provide support in development of suitable projects that also foster a love of music.
