The Beethoven Foundation was founded in 2008 by pianist and composer Ian Mulder. He currently serves as President (Pro Deo) of the Foundation. We provide free pianos and grand pianos to uniquely talented young people who otherwise would not be able to follow their dreams to become successful musicians. Please donate your instrument and we will find a happy new home for it!
