We are planning to embark on a multiphase campaign as we envision our new home and the next 25 years. The first phase of our campaign requires us to raise $100,000 by year end to support the early planning and pre-development phase for the facility. If we achieve this goal by year end, you will help us unlock the doors of our new facility and unleash $6.5 million in capital funding pledged by New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Commissioner Tom Finkelpearl, New York City Council Members Stephen Levin (33rd District), Robert Cornegy (36th District), Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo (35th District), and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, among other elected officials.

Help us to "Build On The Dream" and in so doing you will be making dreams come true for hundreds of thousands of children, families, schools, and communities.

Thanks a Million!


Every year NPF String Music Program is supported by incredibly generous individual, corporate and not-for-profit funders. With their consideration and support we are able to fund groundbreaking programs in the arts such as our community youth orchestras and Summer Music Intensive Program.  We are also able to provide scholarships and financial aid to many families based on merit and need.  Without our funders we would not be able to fulfill our mission to provide these services to children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to receive quality music lessons.  Without their consideration we would not be able to continue Empowering Children...One Note At A Time.
