Sponsors are critical to FWMO's continuing commitment to honor our Fallen Warriors.

Little Kids Rock Is a national nonprofit that transforms children's lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in disadvantaged public schools.  We do this by partnering with school districts, training public school teachers in our innovative curriculum, and by donating all of the instruments and resources necessary to run rockin' music programs.  We do this because playing music is so much more than just 'fun' for the kids - it is transformational and vital.  Yet budget cuts have forced many school music programs to close, especially in schools serving low-income communities.   Kids who play a musical instrument are 57% more likely to attend college.  Little Kids Rock has served almost 200,000 public school kids in the US with instruments and instruction.
