The Phillips Music Guild of Indianapolis benefits from the great generosity of Indianapolis musicians who give freely of their time to support the Guild's education mission.  Nonetheless, we do incur a considerable expense to offer these programs.

There are significant costs for facility access, music purchases, instruments, insurance, and administrative costs, for example.  We depend on gifts from granting organizations and many individuals who want to see our mission fully achieved in the community.

The Phillips Music Guild of Indianapolis is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity

The Phillips Music Guild of Indianapolis serves talented central Indiana school age instrumental music students through volunteer adult mentoring, using a variety of musical styles and tuition-free ensembles to develop a lifelong passion for the joy of music performance and enriching their lives by building upon and broadening their school experience.

Our vision is that all Indianapolis students will have the opportunity to experience music as a vital force in their lives. This opportunity was given to the members of the Guild in large part by the personal efforts of Robert Phillips, and we are now passing this opportunity on to the next generation.
