Give the Gift of Music to Under-Served Students



The Mr. Holland's Opus Fund provides musical instruments to underserved K-12 school programs, enabling thousands of students to enjoy the life-altering benefits of a quality music education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In the last several years, school music programs have been gutted by budget cuts. It is vitally important that children are not deprived of experiencing their enormous potential for creativity, imagination, discipline, self-esteem and confidence, as well as experiencing the social, emotional and cognitive benefits that come from playing music. Music programs are also a catalyst for creating parental and community involvement in school and often a motivating factor for a child to stay in school.

How will this project solve this problem?

MHOF donates needed instruments to school music programs that struggle to stay active, so that more students can play and benefit from active music making.

Potential Long Term Impact

Thousands of students each year, and many more over the life of the instruments, will be able to reap the lifelong benefits of a music education.
