Bob Moog Foundation
“There’s a misconception in Asheville that the Bob Moog Foundation is part of Moog Music. We’re a small, independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit created by Bob's family and colleagues; we work on various educational and archival projects. Teaching science through music and bringing history alive for future generations are our passions.” — Executive Director Michelle Moog-Koussa
What they do: Use the magic of music to teach children and adults about the science of sound. A pilot program, Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, involves ten second-grade classes in the Asheville City Schools. Over the next five years, the foundation hopes to expand it nationwide. They also preserve and protect Bob Moog's extensive archives for use in future traveling exhibits and the planned Moogseum.
What they need: Skilled volunteers, grants, partnerships and donations.
