Help Keep Music Alive In Our Schools!
THE MR. HOLLAND’S OPUS FOUNDATION (MHOF) supports music education and its many benefits through the donation and repair of musical instruments to under-served schools, community music programs and individual students nationwide.
To date, MHOF has donated $4.5 million worth of new and refurbished instruments to 751 music programs and individuals across the country, effectively helping hundreds of thousands of students and hundreds of dedicated teachers. In addition, MHOF has served 89 schools in six states affected by Hurricane Katrina, donating approximately $1.5 million worth of new and refurbished instruments.
WHY MHOF WAS STARTED
Across the nation, school and community music programs have been discontinued or severely diminished due to budget cuts. The positive effects of music education on children’s emotional and intellectual growth have been proven. MHOF sees the importance of music in the lives of all children, and seeks to keep music alive in our schools.
HOW THE FOUNDATION WORKS
Through a process of application and review, programs are selected based on specific criteria. We first make repairs to damaged instruments, distribute refurbished instruments and then purchase new instruments.
The Melody Program targets qualified K-12 school music programs.
The Special Projects Program targets after school music programs.
The Michael Kamen Solo Award targets outstanding student musicians who cannot afford to obtain an appropriate instrument.
