Toronto, Ontario M6R 2L2


Mission & Goals:

Rainbow Songs Foundation (RSF) provides interactive music programs to families with young children staying in emergency short and long-term shelters in the Greater Toronto Area.

Young families are the fastest growing demographic within the shelter system in our city, facing issues like domestic violence, poverty, and homelessness. These issues drastically impact the social, emotional, and intellectual development of children, perpetuating and widening the gap between the economically advantaged and disadvantaged in our community.

We know that music nurtures the soul and research shows that music education provides real and lasting cognitive benefits to children and youth. By giving parents the skills and tools to make music with their children, RSF seeks to make a real difference in families’ lives today and in the future.

How your contribution helps:

Your donation makes music. Music makes a difference.

Rainbows Songs Foundation is an all-volunteer organization funded completely through the generous support of community members like you. Your donation directly impacts the families we serve. Here's how:

  • $25 - Adds a brand-new musical instrument to the RSF collection - a dumbek, a conga, or a whole handful of shakers!
  • $50 - Sponsors one young family's participation in a 10-week class at a local shelter.
  • $150 - Purchases a Rainbow Songs CD for every family in an RSF class to keep and play again and again.
  • $500 - Buys a full collection of high-quality, durable musical instruments for an RSF class including drums, tambourines, maracas, bells, and castanets, to name a few.
  • $1,000 - Covers the cost of one full 10-week session for as many as 20 children and their caregivers.

Because we are such a small organization, every dollar really counts. Your gift, no matter the size, opens a world of music for families in shelters. And music makes a world of difference.
