“Excellence is not an act but a habit. The things you do the most are the things you will do the best.”
– Marva Collins

About Marva Collins

“American educator Marva Collins pioneered progressive education for disadvantaged children. She was born in Alabama in 1936 and in her 20’s moved to Chicago, where she founded a school for children who were at risk. After one year, every child tested at least five grades higher. Many public schools have successfully implemented her methods. She has appeared on 60 Minutes and Good Morning America. She believes every child is a winner until someone convinces him or her too thoroughly otherwise.”

Kindermusik Educators want every child to have music in their lives and to that end raised $18,000.00 which will be matched by Kindermusik International for a total of $36,000 added to the fund. These funds were raised to provide scholarships to at risk and special needs children at the first ever Silent Auction and Live Auction Charity dinner to fund the Ruth D. Anderson Kindermusik Children’s Fund.

The Ruth D. Anderson Kindermusik Children’s Fund provides At Home Materials and/or tuition to children who are physically or emotionally challenged, who are financially or educationally disadvantaged, who have physical disabilities, or who have lost a parent. Applications for scholarships are accepted online once each year, from May 15 through June 15.

The Ruth D. Anderson Children’s Fund is able to provide scholarships through contributions from Kindermusik International, Kindermusik educators, and proceeds from the sale of Love Everyday, a book of stories from Kindermusik educators about the joy of bringing music into the lives of children and families.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the Children’s Fund, send a check payable to “Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro” to the following address:

Anderson Kindermusik Children’s Fund.”Love everyday is available for purchase in the Kindermusik Store and it makes a wonderful gift or coffee table book .
