The Gift of Music Matters
Gibson was founded in 1894 and has been synonymous with creating, shaping, delivering, inspiring, and owning the ‘share of sound.’ In 1906, Gibson realized the benefits and power of music and music education. Instead of using traditional sales-reps to sell instruments, Gibson engaged with teacher agents to get guitars in the hands of students of all ages. Gibson realized early on that getting instruments into the hands of those with a desire to make music is a truly life-changing event.
Founded in 2002, the Gibson Foundation is committed to making the world a better place through music by creating, developing, and supporting programs, and other non-profit organizations, in their efforts to advance youth-focused or healing music initiatives by growing the ‘share of sound’ for everyone. We believe that music makes everyone young at heart. Giving music starts with (YOU)th.
