Charity Foundation For Kids
In 2013, Scala established the “Mike Scala Foundation for Youth,” an organization that provides aid and educational opportunities for at-risk youth across the U.S. and developing countries. “My goal is bigger than to pursue my passion as an artist. I want to make a difference in the world not only through the music but as an active member of the philanthropic community. My goal is to play Madison Square Garden someday and with that I want to be able to raise a couple of million dollars and go out and help those in need” says Scala – (Broken Records Magazine). The organization has worked with UNICEF, YMCA, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, YWCA, and The American Cancer Society providing food, clothing, and educational supplies to youth in need. Scala also continues his work with music and youth and has founded musician alliances around the world in order to provide mentoring and music programs for youth in need.
