There is so much that goes into running a music therapy program. Your donation will support program expenses, new instruments, scholarships, and more. By supporting the Nordoff-Robbins Center for Music Therapy, you are helping us reach hundreds of individuals through a program that makes a difference, where others can often fail.
A number of organizations and foundations support the work of the Center, including the Nordoff-Robbins Foundation, Atherton Family Foundation, Autism Speaks, Inc., Harry S. Black and Allon Fuller Fund, Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation, The Gibson Foundation, The Lyle Foundation, The New York State Music Fund established by the New York State Attorney General at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisers, Charles and Mildred Schnurmacher Foundation, Teammates for Kids Foundation, The Joseph Leroy and Ann C. Warner Fund, Goldman Sachs Gives, The Jean Brown Johnson Charitable Fund, the Jesse Ritholz Memorial Fund, Adam Cieply, Paine Partnership LLC, Jack C. Martin and Colleen M. Crowley, Ka-Ching Cheung, Munja and Bill Orzolek, Sabrina and Omer Ozden, and Vevo.
Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy is successful due to its labor-intensive nature. There is no substitute for the focused and sustained attention of experienced therapists when it comes to connecting with hard-to-reach individuals such as autistic children. Most sessions are conducted with two therapists, a third person films the session, and the two therapists spend additional time reviewing the video recording of each session. This intensive time commitment means that session costs far exceed the fees charged to families. Additionally, we offer a sliding scale so that no client is denied service. With the help of generous donors like you, we will continue to say “yes” to those who come to us seeking help.
