MMEA Foundation/Fund Drive

MMEA Annual Fundraising Drive

The MMEA Foundation was established in late 1997 with an initial contribution of $78,000, and has since grown to over $125,000 through the generosity of our members, retirees and affiliated organizations. The Foundation provided over $45,000 in grant money for music education professional development and advocacy in the past 15 years.

In the fall of 2011, MMEA initiated an annual Fundraising Drive with the hope of reaching past and present MMEA members, businesses and other music organizations to help provide the highest quality opportunities available to Minnesota students and educators.

In this challenging time of budget crisis and the back to basics movement, we must take thoughtful, bold steps to invest in our children’s future.  The help of monetary donations ensure that more students are able to receive scholarship funding for All-State, and that other MMEA programs and projects can continue to function at their highest level.

What Can You Do?
• Annual Giving – Give a tax-deductible contribution by check (payable to the MMEA) or credit card.  You can specify if you would like the donation to be used toward All-State scholarships, or for general MMEA operating expenses.
• Name the Minnesota Music Educators Association in your will. For more information about planned giving or a charitable bequest, please contact the MMEA office.

If you would like to contribute to MMEA, send your tax-deductible donation to MMEA, 6120 Earle Brown Drive, Suite 215, Brooklyn Center, MN 55430. The MMEA Foundation is managed by the Minnesota Community Foundation.
