The Music Therapy Impact Fund is a fund with The North Valley Community Foundation that implements music therapy programs and provides individual music therapy services.

The Hospice Music Therapy program is in its 4th year providing services to hospice and palliative care patients in Chico, Oroville, Orland, Hamilton City, and Paradise.

Following the Camp Fire the Music Therapy Impact Fund provided group and individual music therapy to kids, teens, and adults who were affected by the fire. In addition to those directly affected, groups were also facilitated for organizations that supported the community.
