In 2016, Stephen Stohn and Linda Schuyler made an extraordinary pledge of $500,000 in matching funds to MusiCounts in support of the MusiCounts Band Aid Program. Through their long-standing history with the charity, they recognized that MusiCounts had the power to continue changing the landscape of music education for children across Canada, and wanted to inspire others to get involved and support the mission of the charity.
Every individual who donated $10,000 or more was invited to join a new community of donors called the MusiCounts Leadership Circle.
Linda Schuyler and Stephen Stohn, Founders of the MusiCounts Leadership Circle
MusiCounts continues to invite and engage leaders and influencers to join the Leadership Circle to support our ongoing efforts to provide musical instruments, equipment, and resources to schools in need across Canada. As a member of the MusiCounts Leadership Circle, we look to you to make our vision of accessible music education for all young people in Canada a reality and help drive this change.
"The work that MusiCounts does through its Band Aid Program has a widespread, tangible impact, not only for kids enrolled in school today, but for kids enrolling for many years to come. They will reap the benefits of music education because of the thousands of musical instruments MusiCounts supplies across Canada each year. I encourage everyone to join us in supporting MusiCounts’ mission to make music accessible to all children and youth." - Mark Cohon, CARAS/The JUNO Awards & MusiCounts Chair.
To further discuss your support and involvement, please contact Kristy Fletcher, MusiCounts' Executive Director.
