WE INVEST IN YOUTH
Music Forward aims to achieve the most we can for the young people we impact, while improving our processes and outcomes, and being transparent in the process. Online, in person or upon request, our goal is to provide you with clear information about our work.
We receive generous in-kind donations from our corporate supporters, which includes rent, contract services, and other goods and services. Including these in-kind donations in our functional spend, 86 cents of every dollar raised from public donors goes directly to programs and services.
Music Forward has earned the Platinum GuideStar Nonprofit Profile Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. By sharing metrics that highlight changes Music Forward is making toward its mission, the organization is helping donors move beyond simplistic ways of nonprofit evaluation like overhead ratios.
