Mangold Music Foundation

Our Mission

The mission of the Mangold Music Foundation (MMF) is to put guitars and ukuleles in the hands of hospitalized children and to create music programs in our community.

Our Partners

We are thankful for our sponsors, large and small. Individuals, corporations and music stores in the area all support our programs throughout the year. 



Our Programs

MMF currently provides music instruments and lessons to Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, Maria Fareri Children's Hospital in Westchester and The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore plus other hospitals. We welcome other opportunities in the area for donations and/or lessons. MMF also creates music programs for the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich as well as at the ASPIRE program at Family & Children's Agency in Norwalk.

“If I were to rank the impactful experiences I have had at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, watching Charlie teach a little boy in isolation how to play a ukulele would be at the very top. I will never forget the smile on the little boy’s face and the pure joy in his eyes. Also, we do not currently have a music therapist on staff. As we continue our search for funding, the donations and in-person lessons from the Mangold Foundation really fill that void for our child life program and our pediatric patients."
