The Board of Directors of Readers Digest Partners for Sight foundation is proud to announce that they have awarded The Filomen M.

FMDG serves as a resource to music educators and performers nationwide as one of the leading providers of large print and braille music.” The bulk of the award will be directed to assisting FMDG in the production of braille and large print music for students currently enrolled in classes, thus continuing RDPFS tradition of providing access to materials that promote literacy in the blind and vision impaired community.
