The MTACC Legacy Fund

Our non-profit organization exists to further develop the music students of our community.  Find out how YOU can help.

Our Story

In 2013, three local Clark County music teachers gathered together to create a legacy scholarship fund in their mothers' honor.  Since that time, Cinda Redman, Elena Vozheiko-Wheaton, and Linda Appert have dispersed $15,250 to high school graduates who are continuing their music education at the collegiate level.  The MTACC collaborates together for fundraising concerts and events, and matches donations every year, so we can benefit even more students.  The legacy fund lives on - but we need your support to continue to seed funds.

The mission of the MTACC Legacy Fund is to provide opportunities for high school graduates to further their music education at the collegiate level and to continue to bring the love of music to the next generation.

Why Give?

When you contribute to the MTACC Legacy Fund, you are helping foster artistic growth and achievement through programs that nurture the creation, performance, and further study of music.  Your donation will fund the scholarships given to deserving young musicians seeking to further their education and experience in both performance and creative music fields at the collegiate level.  These musicians strive to achieve new heights in performance, composition, and music education.  

With your support, the MTACC Legacy Fund can continue to bring educational opportunities to students and to challenge them to achieve artistic excellence.  Your contribution to the MTACC Foundation is an investment in the future.
