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
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
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.
