The Kretzer Piano Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the gift of music to children and seniors in our community.  We are passionate about music being a part of every child’s life and believe that any child who desires it, should have access to a musical instrument, therefore positively transforming lives.  We provide music performance opportunities where young musicians can share their talents with others.  Scholarships are provided to children who cannot afford music lessons and the foundation has donated more than 25 pianos to children’s charities.   

 

 

90% of your donation will directly benefit our programs.
