Every penny of your donation goes directly to the production and shipping of these CDs.  No one is paid for work with the Tacy Foundation.  We are a 501c3 tax-exempt organization with the impassioned mission of inspiring hope, note by note.

 Whether you donate monthly or less-frequently, please know that your hard-earned money is invested in programs that empower youth to serve the underprivileged.  The Tacy Foundation youth engaged in volunteer service lift those who are underprivileged or elderly through their music and their story.

 Please read the inside inserts of the 2018 CDs.  Eric Lin,  Alena Lu & Michael Xie on CD #5, and Natalya Volokov & Vladimir Volkov on CD #6 wrote their personal messages for recipients of their CDs.  They and all the young performers on all 7 CDs inspire us all!


Thank you!
