This Foundation is truly a volunteer effort - nobody gets paid for the many hours every month that goes into running an organization of this size.  And, we are a non-profit that relies heavily on donor and sponsor support to be able to do what we do.  We need you!  If you or your organization would like to become a donor or sponsor by contributing funds, materials or equipment to support The Will McLean Music Festival, Our Concert Venuesthe Foundation’s Youth Programs, our Educational Scholarships, the In School Florida History and Culture programs or any of our other varied and ever growing projects please contact: Doug Spears, Foundation President [This email address is being protected from spambots.
