Offering peace, rest, hope and healing has been at the heart of Music to Light the World since its founding in 2004. Of the 4 million lives touched so far, many people have shared amazing stories about the music making a difference in their life or health circumstances. Through its Get Music Give Hope℠ program Music to Light the World donates one album to a cancer center or hospital for every album purchased.
50% of support comes through donations. Please consider making a generous tax-deductible gift to Music to Light the World. Visit the Donations page to make a secure online gift or the Contact Us page to mail a check.
