Since 2006, MFE has awarded over $1.2 Million in grants, scholarships and direct program support to schools and community arts groups in Lancaster County.

Here’s why we exist:

Music is important to our community.
Research shows that music education helps create strong schools and vibrant communities.
Music programs are in financial trouble.
Despite overwhelming evidence of their value, funding for music programs is being slashed.
Music for Everyone is doing something to help.
Our mission is to cultivate the power of music for education and community building.


Our strategy employs three steps:

1. Consult with education and community leaders to identify and assess needs of school and community based music programs,

2. Raise community awareness of those needs and resources to address them,

3. Strategically invest those resources to effectively and efficiently address those needs.
