Mission Statement

Our mission at Use Your Gift Foundation is to provide education and guidance to aspiring young musicians regardless of race, religion, gender or financial standing. We desire to help these young artists reach their musical dreams – while improving their performance skills, self-esteem, and confidence. Real-world music opportunities including studio recording and live performance are the foundation of the Use Your Gift program.

Use YOUR Gifts to Further THEIRS!

The best way to learn more about the Use Your Gift Foundation is to ask the founder, Sandy Ficca, about it directly.  He will earnestly tell you it came to light and life shortly after he mentored a young singer/songwriter through her senior project at a Rogue Valley high school.  Sharing his reflections on how much he enjoyed the experience with a friend who works at fundraising for non-profits and in particular, day care centers, she encouraged him to consider seeking his own non-profit 501 c 3 status to continue to provide mentoring to other aspiring performing artists.
