Mission Statement

The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation keeps music alive in our schools by providing vital support services to school districts, and new musical instruments to underfunded music programs nationwide, giving under-represented youth access to the many benefits of music education, leading them to success in school, and inspiring creativity and expression through playing music.

Description

The foundation donates new instruments to school music programs that lack the resources to keep up with equipment loss due to attrition, depreciation and wear over time, and to accommodate students on waiting lists or who have to share instruments. An infusion of instruments enables more students to participate and to experience a quality music education. It is vital that efforts are made to give youngsters every tool available within the small window of time when they can make the most of their education, and experience the benefits inherent in learning to play music.

I have been volunteering with MHOF for over two years. The environment is friendly and welcoming. Tasks can be varied or ever changing, as they strive to adapt assignments to volunteer preferences. The foundation itself is efficient and transparent.

Every child needs exposure to culture to complete the person they are to become.
