Music is a great healing tool, and for those who would like to donate their time, money, or instruments, here is a short list of some great non profit music charities for your consideration!!

Musicians On Call Musicians On Call’s Volunteers deliver the healing power of music by going bed-to-bed to perform acoustically for patients, their families and staff. Their Bedside Performance Program serves patients of a wide demographic affected by conditions that keep them hospitalized. Sometimes overnight, or alternatively, hospice and other forms of long-term care.
Volunteer Musicians are never alone and are always accompanied by a trained MOC Volunteer Guide who is familiar with each hospital’s protocols and procedures. While nearly all performances are in patients’ rooms, a musician may occassionally play for small groups (in the lobby, dining room, etc.).

Guitar For Vets Nearly one million of our Military Veterans are afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In fact, more soldiers have committed suicide since the Vietnam War than have died in actual battle. But many are finding hope in an unlikely place: behind the wood and strings of an acoustic guitar. The healing power of music helps soldiers cope. That’s why we provide Veterans with guitars and a forum to learn how to play. But we can’t do it without your help. Please read on to learn more about the program and how you can help those who served rediscover their joy through the power of music. Guitar 4 Vets

Hungry For Music In 1992, Jeff Campbell organized a street musician concert to benefit the homeless and within three years he formed a non-profit organization called Hungry For Music, dedicated to expanding opportunities in music for children. Since then, Hungry for Music has placed more than 11,000 instruments in the hands of aspiring musicians – children whose trajectory is forever altered by the life-changing gift of music. They have delivered anything from trombones and violins to xylophones and guitars to children in 49 states and 25 countries.

Sweet Relief Founded in 1994, Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is dedicated to providing assistance to career musicians of all genres who may be struggling to make ends meet in the face of illness, disability, or even age-related problems as they grow older.
