On Wednesday 1st June 2016, Justina Gringytė launched her charity foundation in aid of young musicians.
To be a talented musician is a gift, but to develop that talent requires dedication, discipline and funds. This is why Justina was compelled to create this foundation; so that musically gifted children can be assisted financially to further their education and fulfill their potential.
The main objectives of the foundation:
- to help young, talented musicians to develop their skills
- to assist in purchasing instruments and paying for tuition fees
- to support their participation in international and local competitions, and masterclasses
- to provide opportunities for them to perform
