The D'Addario Foundation's Girls in Music Initiative provides the resources and guidance young women need to pursue their dreams in the music industry and beyond.


Now more than ever, we’re committed to helping make music education possible for children who would not otherwise have access to it. Today we’re asking you to help us bring equity to music education and provide all kids with the opportunity to make music.

The D’Addario Foundation is a unique 501c3 non-profit grant-making organization providing monetary and product support to high-quality sustainable music instruction programs on the frontline to improve access to music education. We support programs that bring music back into communities and schools and get kids playing as early and as frequently as possible. The D'Addario Foundation believes in the transformative power of music and that mentoring and building communities through music can positively affect social change.
