YOUR DONATION IS MAKING MUSIC MATTER FOR KIDS
What if with your donation there was one activity that could benefit every student in every school across the nation? An activity that could improve grades and scores on standardized testing? An activity that would allow students to form lasting friendships? An activity that would help students become more disciplined and confident?
Fortunately, there is such an activity. Unfortunately, many schools will not make it a part of their curriculum, due to issues of funding and scheduling. This activity is something that everyone is aware of, but not everyone has a chance to participate in. This activity is music and your donation makes it possible to make music matter for kids.
The National School Boards Association and Americans for the Arts found that young people enrolled in intensive arts programs are more likely to be recognized for school attendance, academic achievement, student government, creative writing math and science fairs.“The worst thing that could happen to public education would be to cut music/art classes said member of the PSEA Board of Directors and chair of the PSEA Fine Arts Caucus. “Employers are looking for creative young people when recruiting for 21st century jobs. Young people exposed to the arts will be better positioned to get these jobs. We can't outsource creativity; we must make sure that all students have access to arts and music education. The link between arts and academic achievement also appears in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (No Child Left Behind) passed by Congress in 2002. The legislation includes arts education as a “core academic subject.” The Pennsylvania School Code states that students should receive arts and music courses, though they are not mandated.
There's Many Ways Your Employer’s Giving Programs Product or Cash Donation Can Help
Donations can generally take two forms cash or product donations. With your cash donations, your company donates money to our non-profit within a certain budget they’ve allocated for giving back. With product donations, companies donate needed goods and services rather than cash. For example, Client Panera Bread has a program called Panera Gives, where they donate either a certificate for food or fresh bakery products to our non-profit when we have charitable events. They also run one called Day-End Doughnation, which donates unsold bakery and bread items to organizations.The receiving organizations are at liberty to do what they want with the donations provided. Both kinds of donations are a way for companies to support and give back to their local communities as well as build meaningful brand impressions. These donations can come in big or small sizes, as are the companies that donate them and MMMFK is great full to all that donate big or small and use the resources wisely.

The Foundation of the organization produces tangible, ongoing and positive results. Fostering lasting improvement in society, with an emphasis on supporting and empowering children with the great many benefits of music.
Matching Gift Programs
This type of corporate giving program is a great way for organizations to let individual employees be apart of the donation process. Companies who apply matching gift programs promise to contribute to the same nonprofit as the employee, typically matching their donation dollar for dollar. This type of program engages the employee and can improve employee retention, which often becomes the company’s justification for funding them.
Volunteer Grant Programs
In a volunteer grant program, the company promises to provide a donation to eligible nonprofits when their employees volunteer. For example, Google provides $50 grants for every 5 hours an employee volunteers. This not only allows companies to donate to nonprofits that employees care about, but it also encourages employees to take action, which is sometimes what a nonprofit needs most.
Volunteer grant programs are the perfect opportunity for organizations to contribute financially where their employees that might not have the funds to do. This program also improves employee morale and makes employees feel like the company supports their efforts. Nonprofits also benefit because they essentially get two for the price of one—donations and volunteers.
Fundraising Matching Program
Fundraising match programs are another type of corporate giving in which a company will match funds raised by an employee for a fundraising activity, including runs, walks, and biking events.
