The organization's Mission is to preserve our cultural treasure known as the Great American Songbook,by presenting this music to the public at home and abroad as Ambassadors of Song.

Its goal is to build an organization to present singers singing this music for the next 100 years and beyond by creating a national institution dedicated to this body of work from a singer's perspective, (This being the zenith of American songwriting) so as to keep this music in front of the public in education and in concert by supporting the artist and the craft.

Raising $25 million dollars will allow us to build an educational web site for the composers, lyricists, and their bodies of work to download as educational materials for grade school to the university level. This will generate an annual budget of at least $1 million dollars a year in perpetuity for this purpose. It is a 501 C 3 charitable organization and donations are tax deductible. Tax Id #56-2410339
