The Playing For Change Foundation relies entirely on the contributions and donations of its supporters to keep its mission alive. These donations directly help to build, staff and equip new and existing music schools in communities in need of hope and inspiration.

Our mission is grounded in inspiration, and in addition to your monetary support, we need your inspiration too. We strive to connect the world through music and in so doing, we also strive to connect our advocates with our cause. Our growing community of sponsors, from the individual to the corporation, has the opportunity to be creatively involved and linked to the growth and spirit of our cause.

On Saturday, September 20th artists, musicians, and music lovers -- people like you -- will gather all over the world to play for change. Performances in concert halls, cafes, and on street corners will create a positive global vibration and support the Playing For Change Foundation’s music education programs for children. 

Gather your community.
Feel the Love.
Play.  Dance. Participate. Celebrate. Give.

Last year people came together at more than 300 events in 56 different countries – all to bring music and inspiration into the lives of children around the world. Join us for the 4th Annual PFC Day on September 20, 2014. Take part in the fun. Be the change. Learn more at www.pfcday.org.


Cécile Spadotto on Why PFC Day Matters
Jeremy Elliott

Cécile Spadotto has recruited an incredible team of dedicated individuals to play for change in her picturesque hometown of Albi, France. Since her first PFC Day celebration last year in 2013, she has been on the ground spreading the word about the PFC movement to local restaurants, bars, shops, and other businesses, drumming up interest and finding friends who are just as eager to participate wherever she goes.
