SEPTEMBER 2022 ALL KIDS NEED MUSIC NEWSLETTER
I hope you are doing well! If you are like me, you are hearing the inflation news and feeling the impact in your wallet. Did you know that with rising costs, there are often rising tempers? As stress grows for our most financially fragile U.S. families, so does the incidence of child abuse. Combined data from over 90 research projects confirms that if all other factors remain constant, decreases in income increase the number of children being abused and neglected.
You might wonder what this has to do with All Kids Need Music’s mission. My response? Everything! You see, we help abused children in foster care heal from their trauma, AND we help homeless and impoverished children. These vulnerable children need hope, healing, a mentor, and a safe place to process their grief. Please be assured that as mandatory reporters of child abuse, we are also another set of eyes and ears to protect children’s safety.
While we can’t solve all of the ills of society, we are called to stand beside the most vulnerable – our children. It is certainly not their fault that they are abused, or homeless or don’t have enough food to eat.
So why do we believe that therapeutic music lessons is a solution? Because, while there are government programs, agencies, and schools stepping in to provide food, clothing, and shelter, there is still a huge gap in meeting these children’s needs.
What is the gap? It is making a path forward for learning despite obstacles, for a mind that can learn, for a heart that can have healthy relationships, and to provide the hope that it is possible to break the cycles of poverty and abuse. And this is EXACTLY what therapeutic music lessons and a compassionate, trauma trained mentor provides for these at risk children.
What is the value of a child’s life? Their emotional health? Their ability to learn? Their future? We don’t think you can put a price tag on a child’s life. Each child is worth it. What if we gave up a few visits to Starbucks, or a couple trips through the drive-thru? I assure you that every sacrifice, no matter how small, has the potential to be a lifeline for an abused, homeless, or impoverished U.S. child that needs someone in their corner giving them a chance. Will you join me in fighting for their future?
Serving the children together,
All Kids Need Music

Corporate Champions for Children
Thank you, Fundamental Music Instruction! Fundamental Music Instruction (FMI) is instrumental (forgive the pun) in supporting the work of All Kids Need Music. Sponsoring children, volunteering unpaid time to teach, and even supplying musical instruments – they truly have been a primary supporter! Fundamental Music provides high quality music classes for schools and individuals either on site or online, and has been doing so for over four decades. Their amazing faculty represents over two hundred years of combined teaching experience. Every teacher has a music degree and many have advanced degrees and are professional musicians that are passionate about sharing the joys of music through teaching. Find out more about the numerous musical instruments and types of lessons FMI offers HERE.
There are numerous benefits for corporate sponsors, including significant marketing benefits and tax deductions. Find out how your company, school, or place of worship can change children’s lives and reap the rewards of compassionate corporate generosity. Click below to find out more.
There are so many ways for individuals to help change the lives of foster children.
Choose a child or children to sponsor for a year. You can choose to cover the costs of the child’s instrument and lessons, just the lessons, or just the instrument. You can also choose to give to the area of greatest need. You can make a single gift or a monthly recurring gift. And remember, it changes children’s lives and is tax deductible as an additional benefit to you.
Businesses that sponsor music lessons and instrument rental for at risk children are first and foremost changing the lives of the most vulnerable children in the U.S. As a thank you for the generosity of our business partners, we provide an effective platform for businesses to build their brand around their corporate generosity.
Research proves that corporations that give back have a significantly higher brand appeal and loyalty rate. Corporations engaged in social good also positively impact their own employees at work satisfaction and company loyalty. Being a champion for at-risk children provides the opportunity for employees to stay in touch with their sponsored child, providing a source of joy and sense of being cared about for children who in many instances have been terribly abused and discarded.
We urgently need your help for thousands of U.S. orphans living in group homes and shelters around our country. These orphaned children have already experienced so much pain and loss from unimaginable child abuse and neglect. They need the opportunity to heal through the therapy of playing a musical instrument. We are an IRS registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your generous gift is tax deductible. As a result of our financial transparency and integrity, we have been awarded the Guidestar Gold Transparency Seal. You can trust us that your tax deductible gift goes to change abused orphans lives. Please do what you can to help these children!
