The organization’s
Mission is: To preserve our cultural treasure known as

the Great American
Songbook, by presenting this music to the public at

home and abroad as Ambassadors
of Song. 


Its goal is to build an
organization to present singers singing this music for the next

100 years and beyond by creating a national institution
dedicated to this body of work from a singer's perspective, (This being the
zenith of American songwriting) 

so as to keep this
music in front of the public in education and in concert by supporting the
artist and the craft.


Raising $25 million
dollars will allow us to build an educational web site for

the composers,
lyricists, and their bodies of work to download as educational

materials for grade
school to the university level. This will generate

an annual budget of at
least $1 million dollars a year in perpetuity for this

purpose. It is a 501 C
3 charitable organization and donations are tax deductible.
