What We Do

Our Funding

From the gracious donations of our sponsors and individual donors, The Farina Foundation provides opportunities for every child to learn through music. Our funding programs are “all about the kids” and support organizations who expand access and opportunity to music education in the Greater Pittsburgh Region.

Many children with musical potential lack the chance to experience the arts due to financial need, lack of resources, and personal challenges. The Foundation keeps music alive for children in need by removing barriers and providing access to music.  Sponsorship is available for low-income students whose families are deeply committed to making music a priority in their lives. The Farina Foundation provides financial support, music, and instruments to such families in need.  Learn more about our Play it Forward Sponsorship Program and apply for student support:

Through the NA Foundation, The Farina Foundation also supports musical excellence and a commitment to continuing music education with the goal to expand the access and opportunity for all children to experience music.
