MUSIC IS INSPIRATION, COMMUNITY AND EDUCATION
The Suzuki Association of Minnesota encourages and supports excellence in education for teachers, parents, students and the general public in Minnesota and the Americas using the principles set forth by Shinichi Suzuki. Dr. Suzuki’s philosophy was founded on the belief that every child could learn, and music study was for everyone, not just for those who exhibited signs of talent. He believed that a positive learning environment would help to foster excellent character in every student.
The organization is dedicated to the belief that participation in music empowers children to make positive changes in their lives and the lives of others. It is also evident that music education improves children’s ability to learn on every level and develop as individuals whose increased self-esteem provides them with the passion to want to foster both the community around them and the world at large.
Whether it’s $1, $10 or $10,000 every bit helps the Suzuki Association of Minnesota aid teachers and children by producing educational events, providing scholarships and participation in the Statewide Graduation program. The Suzuki Association of MInnesota is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. In the state of Minnesota we are organized under the Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Law for charitable purposes.

Give to the Max
GiveMN launched in 2009 as a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place. To generate excitement, they organized Give to the Max Day. That spark touched off a blast of online giving — $14 million in 24 hours. Since that trial run in 2009, Give to the Max Day has become an annual tradition. Every year thousands of organizations raise money to improve the quality of life in Minnesota and communities around the world. Minnesotans have enthusiastically embraced Give to the Max Day. But GiveMN is more than a one-day giving extravaganza. They are a giving website available year-round to link people with nonprofits and schools and make giving soar. Click Here for more information.
