The Jupiter Performing Arts Fund, Inc. was formed for the purpose of encouraging, promoting and supporting music within the public education system in Jupiter, Florida. The mission of this not-for-profit organization is to enhance the music departments and help music students move up the ladder of success by providing instruments, artists in residence, music clinicians, scholarships and provide resources for students to advance. Through sponsors, grants and our "New Life for Old Notes" program, we hope to help wherever unavailable, reduced or restricted funding prohibits students from succeeding to their full musical potential.
Music is the international language. It is a well known fact that children who play an instrument have a higher level of academic achievement,concentration and sense of confidence. School bands and orchestras build valuable social skills in teamwork and communication among peers through interest in school involvement and the study of music. Supporting school music programs helps to create better citizens for our communities and for the world. Musical education helps to give students a boost up the ladder of knowledge and success. However, because of educational budget cuts, our bands need your help.
Ninety-eight percent of our funds come from individuals, foundations and community business leaders who realize that sound financial investments should be made in education in our public schools.
