2023 Musicthon Charity



Founded in 2010, the Grace Notes Music Foundation began as an outreach program of the Jupiter Academy of Music whose purpose was the administration of the Makayla Joy Sitton Music Scholarships. Named after a joyful, talented music student who loved to play the piano, the scholarships were a way of honoring the life of Makayla. Her family wanted to continue her legacy and love of music by making music lessons possible for children in need. In September of 2011, the Makayla Joy Sitton Music Scholarships were born and the Grace Notes Music Foundation received its 501(c)(3) designation.

The Grace Notes Music Foundation has a bright future and a vision for growth in the years to come with adding more scholarships and reaching more children in the community. Building on the cornerstone of our organization, the Makayla Joy Sitton Music Scholarships, the Foundation continues to fund music scholarships and community outreach programs to children in need.
