During WinterWonderful December 2014, Phillip and Patricia Frost made the surprise announcement that they would give a one million dollar endowment to name the MusicReach program after former University of Miami President Donna Shalala.  MusicReach is also funded by the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust and Canon.  Private donors include Dr. Arthur and Lynda Gordon, Patti and Allan Herbert, Paige and Lou Adler, Liliam and Gus Machado, and Joe and Janet Shein. 

MusicReach relies on the generosity of our funders.  In order to provide a high quality music education program for many of the most deserving children and youth in South Florida, funds are needed to support undergraduate scholarships, graduate student teaching assistant stipends, as well as the purchase of musical instruments and supplies.
