Mind&Melody is a nonprofit organization implementing interactive music programs at healthcare facilities for individuals experiencing Alzheimer's. We bring live performances, teach the basics of music theory, and have created a color-coding system that helps our participants play sheet music and create their own music.

We are a team of individuals dedicated to helping minds find their melody through music! Over the past two years, we have established five chapters of Mind&Melody across Florida at FIU, FAU-Boca, FAU-Jupiter, UF, and FSU. Our organization runs 100% on volunteers. We currently have six Mind&Melody programs running state-wide and are looking to create ten more programs by the end of this year!

So if you want to be part of carrying out this vision and are excited about helping people through music, this grant writing opportunity was made for you! You will be able to use your writing skills and personality to engage potential grantors and help Mind&Melody expand further across Florida!
