Music Therapy Impact Fund – Request for Services

Promoting music therapy to address the spiritual, developmental, and physical needs of the whole person.


We are pleased that you are interested in music therapy and grateful that we are able to provide such a wonderful service.

Music therapy is the use of evidence-based music interventions to address spiritual, developmental, and physical needs of the whole person. The immediate goals of The Music Therapy Impact Fund are to:

  • Develop a Music Therapy Program for hospice and palliative care
  • Provide evidence that demonstrates the efficacy of music therapy in hospice and palliative care, specifically
  • Create the foundation for a community-initiated program that becomes an established mainstream service
  • Establish Chico as a place for innovative healthcare.
  • Bring awareness to the profession of music therapy and the benefits in overall healthcare


This fund works a little differently than most grants. It is not a competitive process; rather, it is set up as a first come, first served request process. So long as funds are available, anyone* who fills out a request form for music therapy will receive it.

*The person receiving music therapy must be receiving hospice care from an accredited organization, such as Enloe Hospice, Feather River Hospice, Butte Home Health and Hospice, etc.  

Your contact information will be received by a member of the board for The Music Therapy Impact Fund, who will then forward the information to a board-certified music therapist. The therapist will contact you to set up the best time to meet with the individual. Your information will otherwise remain confidential.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.
