About the Foundation

In the first half of the twentieth century, something magical happened in America.  A battery of musical geniuses on Broadway, Tin Pan Alley, and in Hollywood created some of the most popular and enduring songs the world has ever known.

These are the songs that captured the moment we fell in love, the songs that nursed our broken hearts, and the songs that underscored the happy ending.  They put voice to our spirit of optimism and our hope for the future.  They are the spring in our steps, the springtime in our hearts.  The Great American Songbook is the heartbeat of the American spirit, its pulse in thirty-two bars.

Our Mission

The mission of the Great American Songbook Foundation is to inspire and educate by celebrating the Great American Songbook.  We do this through the following (click on pictures to learn more):


We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization to which all contributions are tax-deductible.
