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.
Nat King Cole Generation Hope envisions a day when all children are given the opportunity to achieve and experience excellence in music. Founded in 2008 to honor and preserve the Cole Family Legacy, the goal is to foster harmony between people through music, the universal language of all mankind.
