Support Us.

The Mama Foundation for the Arts is a non-profit organization whose mission is to make a joyful noise, to uplift the Black musical treasures of gospel, jazz, and R&B, and to heal and inspire through the power of collective music making.


With your generosity, we are able to provide tuition-free programming and sustain ourselves as a Harlem legacy institution where an intergenerational and interracial community is promised to “Be Seen and Be Heard” in the fullness of their experience – their voices, their stories, and their hearts. Join the Mama family today and help continue this legacy!
