What your donations do
We envision a community where every person can access, experience, and connect through music. All of our programs are grounded in the philosophy that participating in music – expressing oneself through making sound – is both liberating and empowering for those who traditionally have had no voice in our society.
We believe in what we do and are proud to say that Note-Able Music Therapy Services enhances the lives of those who face so many barriers to community inclusion – and improves the quality of life for all of us.
Even though we serve more than 1,000 people per year, our program fees only bring about 16% of the money required to fund our organization. That is why your support is so vital. Your donations keep music and music therapy accessible to people regardless of their ability to pay.
When you donate to Note-Able Music Therapy Services, you are truly enriching the lives of those who would otherwise not have access to musical avenues for expression. Your donation helps people express themselves, connect with each other, heal from the inside out and thrive in the world.
Thank you for your gift!

I'm happy to donate, but I also want to be more involved. What can I do?
We have lots of events through the year for you to attend, including performances, parties, our Evening of Romance gala, Artown events, outreach activities, and fundraising events. Our focus is always on music and inclusion, so almost everything that we do is filled with the spirit of music.
We’d love for you to attend events and invite people to join you.
