Founded in 2008 by a collective of musicians and music lovers, Midwest Music Foundation (MMF) is a nonprofit created to support music and musicians in Kansas City and the surrounding areas.
We are dedicated to sharing our love of music and using it to provide the help musicians need to keep playing and working toward their dreams.
The Midwest Music Foundation Board of Directors works to keep the music going by staying true to our mission and the vision Abby had for the organization.
We support musicians so they can keep the music alive. We offer services in education, outreach, and health care options to the Kansas City music community.
Abby’s Fund for Musicians Healthcare is dedicated to providing emergency funds to local underinsured or uninsured musicians of the greater Kansas City area.
The event that started it all, Apocalypse Meow is the main fundraiser for Abby’s Fund and MMF, drawing a crowd of avid KC musicians and music lovers together every year.
MidCoast Takeover was born out of the area offering more than farmland -- an actual deep appreciation for music and a community of talented performers.

There are many resources our musicians and we use to help keep the Kansas City music community thriving. These facilities and people work tirelessly to support musicians in creating the beats we love to hear.
We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to participate in the Kansas City music community through playing, volunteering, or donation. Contact us if you have any questions about membership, health care, or our upcoming shows and events.
