The McKnight 360 Foundation launched in 2012 to help raise awareness and provide solutions for the lack of funding for musical programs in schools across the country.

The Foundation represents Brian’s commitment to help educate and foster creativity. With an inherent understanding of the value of arts in the education of children nationwide, The Foundation looks to support arts in schools across the country by funding educational programs. The McKnight 360 Foundation believes that the arts help develop self-confidence in kids and young adults, which in turn provides for a well rounded and positive educational experience.

This fall, the McKnight 360 Foundation will roll out the Fred D. Willis Performance Academy, to continue the evolution of quality music education in schools across the country.
