Music for the Mission is a non-profit organization that raises money and awareness for homelessness and hunger in Central New York through music events and concerts.

Founded by Joe Stanley in 2008, Music for the Mission has grown to become a staple of the Central New York music scene, hosting a variety of events throughout the year, from acoustic coffeehouse shows to full-blown concerts and all proceeds from these events go directly to local organizations that work to combat homelessness and hunger.

Through partnerships with local organizations like the Broome County Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW), the Rescue Mission, and the Food Bank of Central New York, Music for the Mission is able to connect with those in need and make a real difference in our community.
