The goal of the Mangold Music Foundation is to create music in the lives of children in need of hope; to put guitars and ukuleles in the hands of hospitalized children, to create music programs in underprivileged communities where the arts have been removed, to bring the gift of music to those who cannot afford the opportunity.

It takes 30 instruments to fill a pediatric cancer ward with music. It takes 10 guitars, 10 music stands, and 10 lesson books to create music programs for 50 children.
