We get by with a little help from our friends.
Our work is made possible with support from Minnesota Philanthropy Partners, Shavlik Family Foundation, the Elmer L. & Eleanor J. Andersen Foundation, the Harlan Boss Foundation for the Arts, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, and through key partnerships with Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media, Schmitt Music, Software for Good, Viva Musica, The Gift of Music, My Music Store, Groth Music, StorageMart, St. Paul Public Schools, Minneapolis Public Schools, Duluth Public Schools, Minnesota Brass, MTD Research, the Saint Paul Saints, UnitedHealth Group, Lyft, and many more.
We’re fortunate to have a strong and smart set of board members and advisors, and our work is fueled by a committed group of volunteers.
