“Building Better Futures Through Music”
Summer 2019

Summer 2019





Since its founding in 2007, FAYM has raised contributions for scholarships and programs and has helped to secure scholarships for talented high school and university students to attend such fine institutions as the Eastman School of Music (Rochester, NY), the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the Interlochen Arts Academy (Interlochen, MI) and the Carnegie-Mellon School of Music (Pittsburgh, PA).

One of the Foundation's most important programs is its "Violins for Kids" project which was established in 2009.

Designed to serve youngsters in low-income communities, FAYM's "Violins for Kids" provides instruments, materials, up to four class lessons per week, trips to concerts, and a week-long summer camp at minimal cost to families.  Enrollment has grown from 15 to 150 youngsters from 51 schools in greater Las Vegas with plans for further expansion this fall.

FAYM keeps administrative overhead low.  There is no paid CEO or office staff, and no office or classroom rental fees or utility costs.  Administrative functions are performed by highly qualified volunteers.   Legal, accounting, website, instrument procurement & repair, and other services are generously donated 'pro bono' by experts in their fields. 


In order to serve more youngsters,
your help is needed.  

No gift is too small and ALL are most appreciated, 
from a one-time donation to monthly scheduled gifts!
