Our Vision:

One day, all school age children in the Fort Collins Colorado area will have equal access to a quality music education, and the music programs at their schools, or non-profit organizations, will be thriving learning and cultural performance centers.

Our Mission:

Founded on April 1, 2009, the goal of “The Kayla Foundation” is to provide support to:

  • Poudre School District students, with financial needs, helping them more fully participate in their school’s music programs.
  • Poudre School District Schools by helping to enhance their music programs.
  • Fort Collins Colorado area non-profit organizations that focus on the needs of children and young adults with providing musical opportunities for their clients


Grant funding is made through grants to individual schools, or other non-profits, for the purpose of supporting their students / clients and their particular needs. Examples of funding needs are:

For Lower Income Family / Special Needs Students:

  • The purchase or rental of uniforms or performance attire.
  • Basic musical supplies / maintenance (e.g. sheet music / folders, reeds, replacement strings etc.)
  • Large instrument rental fees or the purchase of small instruments and accessories.
  • Fees for music retreats, field trips and special opportunity events.
  • The purchase of music related equipment and supplies to support music therapy programs.
  • Music related travel expenses (e.g. performance attire, participation fees, sheet music, instruments etc.) to participate in very special musical events (e.g. Carnegie Hall or similar performances requiring travel). 


For All Students:

  • Purchase of music teaching tools, subscriptions, software*, recording media and hardware for the classroom.
  • The purchase of sheet music and protective folders.
  • The purchase or repair of instruments, cases, stands and tuners for the classroom.
  • The purchase of sound system equipment for the school / non-profit.
  • Costumes, props, music, and sets for school musical productions.
  • The sponsorship of visiting teaching or performing professionals, and accompanists.
  • Fees associated with musical events benefiting all music student / clients.

Over $135,000, in the form of 482 individual grants to:

49 public schools, (including charter schools)

19 other area non-profits

4 district-wide choirs / festivals

A reported 50,000 children and young adults have been directly impacted by our grants
