About Us

The Michael J. Murphy Scholarship Fund was created in 2009 in memory of Michael (Murph) Murphy, who was taken from us too soon at the age of 31. Our mission is to provide music related lessons and instruments to children from families that do not have the financial means to provide this opportunity.

In the last seven years, through the generosity of our supporters, we have awarded 245 scholarships. Some have chosen to play instruments, others to sing or dance.

Murph’s passion was music. We have been very fortunate to be able to carry on his legacy and make a difference in a life by giving the Gift of Music to those that share that same passion. We ask that you join us by providing whatever support you can to make that a reality.
