What FAYM has accomplished in helping young artists, and exciting an awareness of the benefits of musical training in the community, is nothing short of remarkable. I cannot imagine how my career in music would have been possible without the support and encouragement of mentors the likes of FAYM. I consider it a privilege to support this organization because the recipients of FAYM's mission will undoubtedly bring enrichment and beauty to all the lives they touch. FAYM's fame is spreading like wildflowers! Thank goodness for that!

FAYM has changed my son's life.Krzysztof is now a sophomore student in one of the most prestigious schools in the world- Eastman School of Music studying violin with the wonderful violinist and teacher, Oleh Krysa. This would never, ever be possible without Mr Weller's help and FAYM's support. In fact this wouldn't have happened as because of the financial difficulties we had never even dared to think about Krzysztof's studies abroad and especially in the USA. It was Mr Weller who noticed Krzysztof's performances on youtube, wrote to him and after having learnt about Krzysztof's situation offered him a helping hand. The beginnings were very difficult, as far as I know, and Mr Weller had to put a lot of effort, energy, time and heart to be able to bring Kris to the USA for concerts and recitals launching the Foundation to Assist Young Musicians which allowed to collect some money that enabled Krzysztof's studies in the USA. Mr Weller managed to find many devoted people with big hearts who have become Krzysztof's friends and still support him in his studies.I can find no proper words to express our gratitude for supporters of FAYM and especially for Maestro Weller who decided to devote his life to helping young musicians. The money go to the kids and support their education and development. I know this for sure! Great cause and I'll support it as much as I can. Thank you Maestro Weller!

The Great!

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

watching my son's life change, his going to the USA for concerts and then studies at the Eastman School of Music, his growing as a musician. I can also observe the incredible development of the Foundation and admire the Trustee's devotion to the cause.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the enthusiasm and optimism of the FAYM's Founder Maestro Weller and other members of FAYM Committee, their helpfullness, devotion and kindness.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Luana DeVol the member of the Advisory Committee, the protegee of FAYM Krzysztof Rucinski and Maestro Harold Weller, the Founder of the Foundation.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

support many more needy talented musicians worlwide and promote music education in poor communities of Nevada, Arisona and other regions.

Ways to make it better...

I could find more support for the cause in my own country.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the financial support to keep it running and expanding it.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it's a wonderful cause and I'd like to help more.

They don't seem to really do much what the money given. They just apparently hand it out to who ever they know and that's it instead of being an open thing maybe for auditions or expanding out to reach more people instead of who they please. They raise money for what ever benefits them. NOT GOOD

The Great!

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

Following it over time and realizing that nothing is really done.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get someone respectable to run the damn thing.

Ways to make it better...

Get an actual website and show where all the money is going!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

It's not legit

One thing I'd also say is that...

It's hard to trust something that isn't 100% reliable and straight forward.
