Music. Education. Inspiration.

Our Mission

The DW Music Foundation provides the gift of music making and music education to underserved communities of all ages. We provide music instruments, funds, and inspiration to schools, teachers and students worldwide. Our Foundation enjoys collaborating with fellow music-centric organizations to foster an appreciation of music as a life enhancing and life changing activity.

Since 1972, Drum Workshop, the umbrella company of DW Music Foundation has been dedicated to designing and manufacturing the world’s most innovative drum products. We have a long history of giving back and now with our Foundation, as a 501c3, we are proud to build upon a legacy of giving.


Since our launch in 2020, DW Music Foundation has supported numerous charities, donating music instruments and dollars to schools, teachers and students in need. We take pride in knowing that our gifts help others enjoy the power of music and music making for personal growth, inspiration, and healing.
