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.

I went looking for a different non-profit with a specific mission. Charity Music is the perfect non-profit to donate too. They will accept instruments and give them to aspiring musicians or they will take cash donations to outreach the community with a petting zoo to give children an experience with different kinds of instruments. They have keyboards, guitars, drums and wind instruments for the kids to play and experience. I look to volunteer this weekend at the Stars and Stripes Festival at Freedom Hill. Please come by and see us and ask us about Charity Music.

Charity Music Inc. has developed quite a niche in the community. From the beginning the organization has focused on service members and at risk youth. From the donations of instruments to develop programs for the VA hospitals Charity Music is conducting their mission ethically and compassionately. The feedback from our clients provides our organization with assurance that what we are doing is good for our clients and our community. I would like to nominate Charity Music for the Non-Profit of the Year for meeting the clients needs and making musical instruments as part of the rehabilitation program at VA hospitals.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

developing the programs and participating in many activities associated with our mission of supplying instruments to at risk youth and our service members.

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

try to continue to increase the public awareness programs to get our name recognition on a national level.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
