Founded by Singer/Musician/Songwriter Josh Groban, this foundation will help to enrich the lives of young people through arts, education, and cultural awareness.
"The combination of my personal experience and belief that the arts in children’s and young adult’s lives help shape and change them for the better, and the sobering reality that these are the exact programs that are being cut from our schools and society at a drastic rate, make me more attuned than ever to the need for this focus.
It is my hope that Find Your Light will cover a wide array of possibilities, from providing instruments and funding for arts programs in schools, to introducing people to the arts and culture around them and even around the world through the use of technology.
I have seen these opportunities change lives. It is my honor and privilege to be able to give back in this way and expand with all of your help. I look forward to the journey ahead and thank you in advance for helping give countless students the chance to find their light."
I have experienced, first hand, the powerful impact the arts have on young lives. As a child I was exposed early to the joys of music, art, and theatre, a joy that I carried through my young life and which continued to blossom into my adulthood.
I grew up in a time when the schools fostered the arts and the funding was provided to do so. I grew up in a time when the arts were realized as an important component of my education.
Today, funding for the arts is at risk and I feel it's time for me to join the effort to ensure that children now are afforded the same arts education that I had. I want every child to know the joy and fullfillment the arts brought, and continues to bring, to my life.
