Who We Are
We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization which envisions a day when music will be a central part of all children’s lives.
Research has proven that access to a quality music education engages students in the classroom and increases graduation rates; improves early cognitive development, math and reading skills; enhances learning in other core subjects; develops critical thinking and leadership skills and fosters self-esteem and the ability to work cooperatively in teams.
But as schools across the nation increasingly face budget cuts and pressures, music is often one of the first subject areas to be cut.
At Nat King Cole Generation Hope, we develop strategic partnerships with community organizations, school districts and the business community to build sustainable music programs by providing grants and creating programs that can be replicated across the country.
Our vision is that the Cole Family Legacy will ensure that future generations are given the opportunity to learn and experience the joy of music.
