All funds raised either go to Music for the Mission’s mini-grant program, an annual grant awarded to grassroots organizations who run projects that help the hungry and the homeless, or to partnerships that fit our mission.

Attorney Joe Stanley, founder of Music for the Mission, and Melissa Bassett, its executive director, recently launched a Summer Facebook Fundraiser to help the homeless and hungry. “All funds raised either go to Music for the Mission’s mini-grant program, an annual grant awarded to grassroots organizations who run projects that help the hungry and the homeless, or to partnerships that fit our mission,” said Bassett.
