Andersen Foundation, the Harlan Boss Foundation for the Arts, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, and through key partnerships with Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media, Datastream Connexion, Schmitt MusicSoftware for Good, Viva Musica, The Gift of Music,Groth MusicStorageMartSt. Paul Public SchoolsMinneapolis Public SchoolsDuluth Public SchoolsMinnesota BrassMTD Research, the Saint Paul Saints, UnitedHealth Group, Submittable, Lyft, and many more.

We're fortunate to have a strong and smart set of board members and advisors, and our work is fueled by a committed group of volunteers.
