About Us

The Marcia Berman Fund for Music and Young Children (MBF) was established in 1997. Its mission is to promote awareness of the importance of music in the school, in the home, and in the lives of young children, and to support activities that bring developmentally appropriate music to young children, families and teachers.

The Fund:

sponsors an Annual Marcia Berman Day of Music for Young Children

produces audio and video products appropriate for young children

collaborates with arts and education organizations on projects of mutual interest that benefit young children.

The Marcia Berman Fund is a project of Community Partners, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency which serves as an incubator and corporate umbrella for programs of benefit to communities in Southern California. Proceeds from the sale of products are used to support the work of the Fund.
