In 2004, Pat Melfi formed MuzArt World Foundation, a global project with partner Ken Kragen, Founder of We Are The World, Hands Across America and Live Aid. Muzart was formed to establish a $2 billion dollar endowment fund to integrate music and arts education back into the public schools across the world through private funding to insure that all children have educational opportunities in music and arts.
Muzart’s goal is to inspire parents, grandparents, teachers, and anyone who was positively impacted by arts and music programs to join with Muzart in a grassroots movement and demand that arts and music programs are returned back to the classroom. By educating the public on the value these programs bring to learning in all other subjects, we can ensure that our future generations of American children stay competitive in the global market
