Thank you for visiting The John Entwistle Foundation home page.
Our primary mission is music education for underserved children. However, we have also done quite a bit for disaster relief as well. We feel, as John Entwistle did, that if we can help we should. Whenever we have chosen to get involved with various fund raising efforts beyond our own mission it was simply because that’s what John would have done.
2005 proved to be a year of tremendous growth for our foundation thanks to the generosity of our many friends and supporters. Our concerts, auctions and other fund raising efforts have insured our ability to provide music education as an alternative to other less desirable activities.
In addition our disaster relief concerts have helped countless people left homeless after the devastating storms of 2004-2005. You can be sure that we will continue to help people in need whenever and wherever we can.
2007 proved to be our biggest year to date. We held an all-star concert to benefit 4 charities including The March Of Dimes, The Children’s Cancer Hospital and The Alliance of the Arts. We also completed our first national fund raising tour with Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Mark Farner, Joe Lynn Turner, Steve Luongo and Mark Hitt. You will find a complete list of past events and shows archived on this site. We also opened new programs and raised awareness about music education and its healing power.
2008 is shaping up to be another winner. Our goal this year is to continue to open new programs and to expand our mission by including children’s hospitals as an additional delivery system. This summer 2 new programs will open with several more in the works. We will continue to seek out national partners in the music industry to aid in the delivery of free music education and instruments to children in need.
Please take some time and look around. Of course we welcome donations and we are equally happy to have people spread the word about The John Entwistle Foundation. Thanks again for visiting.
