Please help us by donating...

The ACMF funds music programs for children from a patchwork of funding sources including government grants, foundations, philanthropy and private donations. There are always more schools and venues that need our help than we are able to provide programs for – so your donation could help tip the balance in favour of another child getting access to the benefits of music education…

CHANGING YOUNG LIVES THROUGH MUSIC

 

The Australian Children’s Music Foundation provides free, long term music programs and instruments to disadvantaged and Indigenous children across Australia, inspiring creativity and imagination while nurturing self-esteem and confidence.

Many charities are devoted to children’s physical well-being.

We are devoted to their mental well-being.

1 in 7 Australian children of primary school age have a mental health problem

Learning music in the classroom increases children’s resilience and helps develop coping strategies

Nearly half of all child mental health disorders begin before the age of 14

Playing an instrument expands a child’s creativity and imagination, building positive neural pathways

It has been found that children with mental health problems experience considerable distress in school and have reduced capacity to engage with their schooling

Music lessons give children greater self-confidence and help build self-esteem

ACMF music programs have the power to change young lives.

If you believe in music, you believe in us.
