The Music Man Foundation is named after the Tony winning musical written by Meredith Willson. Meredith’s widow, Rosemary, started the Foundation in 1998 as the Meredith and Rosemary Willson Charitable Foundation and substantially increased the Foundation’s endowment upon her death in 2010.
In its first decade, in fulfillment of a mission to support programs using music to improve children’s lives, the Foundation focused its investments in two initiative areas: core-curriculum music education and music therapy.
