I relocated to Michigan from San Diego and I was looking for a non-profit organization that has a great purpose and is committed to their cause. Via the United Way website, I found Charity Music. Being a musician, I looked into the charity and I was truly impressed. What they do to promote music for the community, especially children and the military, is truly outstanding! Their 'Instrument Petting Zoo' is such a great idea to instill the desire to take up playing a musical instrument, especially for children, is awesome. Having two young children of my own, I can see the importance and value that this brings. I will be bringing my own children to the 'zoo' the next time it is featured at a local event. So many charities have ulterior motives. There is none with Charity Music. They are an outstanding organization. I look forward to working with them for a long time to come and I encourage others to volunteer their time, donate music and music related materials, and spread the word!

Charity music is a spectacular organization. It is definitely a hidden jewel in Macomb County. This is a great way for children to expand their horizons. It allows them to explore various avenues and challenge themselves without it being a hassle. It enables the children to be themselves and have the opportunity to use different tools through music to find who they are. Ultimately, its a great outlet for children and adolescents that is feasible and accessible to people who cannot afford the wonderful instruments any other way.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None. This organization is great.

Starting off in 1996 with a few good people, who wanted to do a few good deeds, this organization has grown into one of the premier music related nonprofits in the nation. The dedication of its all volunteer workforce is second to none. They are truly deserving of the title GREAT NONPROFIT.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Spread the word on their programs and accomplishment to help increase their donor base.

I have watched this nonprofits rate of growt over the past several years and have been very impressed with their programs and accomplishments. In addition to renting musical instruments at only $35,00 per year, and providing instuments to VA Facilities nationwide, their have also forme a Detroit Drumline which played the halftime performance at Ford Field on Thanksggiving Day.

I am proud to donate to this Great Nonprofit. They take great pride in spending less than 3% on Fundraising, and less than 7% on administration.

They are very efficient and well organized. I always know that my donation is being well spent with this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage them to promote their accomplishments more often.

Charity Music is a great asset to community. They provide musical instruments, and music instruction to those who could not otherwise afford to experience the joy that music can bring. They are a very professional organization that does the right things for the right reasons. Other nonprofits could learn much from this very well organized group of volunteers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage them to establish chapters throughout the nation.
