Mission Statement

The mission of NoteWorthy Kids is to help financially challenged families in the Duluth, MN and Superior, WI area secure music lessons, instruction and instruments for their children.

We know that music can enrich one’s life in so many ways and is an activity that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. A great deal of research also proves that music is an amazing discipline for the mind. Unfortunately, the families of too many talented children face financial challenges that make it difficult, if not impossible, for these talented kids to take music lessons, receive formal instruction or afford an instrument. On that note, we hope you'll help us raise the funds required to enable these talented kids to pursue their passion.

NoteWorthy Kids is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization formed to provide need based financial assistance for private musical education and instruments to Duluth, MN and Superior, WI area children ages six to 18. 

NoteWorthy Kids, Inc. is committed to providing an environment that is free from discrimination in employment and/or opportunity on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, nation origin, ancestry, disability, gender, sexual orientation, age, veteran, military or draft status. Our Non-Discrimination policy is available here.
