Support Music Education in Washington

Make a donation to Music Aid Northwest.
Your donation is tax-deductible.

Music Aid Northwest (MANW) is a nonprofit organization that funds the needs of music classrooms across Washington state. From French horns to marimbas, from ukuleles to xylophones, MANW has distributed over 1.5 million dollars to hundreds of underfunded music classrooms to cover these and other needs as requested by the music teachers themselves.

Music Matters License Plates

Music Matters License Plate

Through a partnership with the Washington State Department of Transporation (WSDOT), these specialty Washington state license plates are available for use on all motor vehicles, with proceeds benefitting public music education through MANW.

Last year, with funds raised from our events, MANW raised over $400K and fulfilled grants for 70 Washington state schools. Examples include:

  • Adams Elementary (Wapato, WA.): mic stands and choir risers
  • Tenino High School (Tenino, WA.): baritone saxophone
  • Cle Elm Roslyn High School (Cle Elm, WA): jazz and choral sheet music
