Your tax-deductible donations to the Mockingbird Foundation fund music education for children with almost no overhead: We keep administrative costs below 1% (uncommonly low, even among nonprofits) by having no salaries, paid staff, or office. For each dollar you donate, essentially the entire dollar goes to fantastic organizations that benefit greatly from whatever generosity you can muster!
As demonstrated by the diverse set of outstanding recipients of the 330+ grants awarded to date, the Foundation applies a rigorous review process that insures your donations are wisely used to support high quality, innovation music education programs.
