Ethos Music Education
Margaret loved music and often talked about music and instruments. Ethos is a Portland organization that teached music education to Portland's youth. Margaret would strongly support this group.

This is from their website:
"Ethos, Inc. was created in 1998 in direct response to massive budget cuts that destroyed most music education programs in Portland's public schools.

Ethos, Inc. has made considerable strides in bringing music education back to underserved youth. Working directly with students throughout Oregon, Ethos, Inc. hopes to introduce a whole new generation of youth to the magic of music. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done, but Ethos, Inc. is committed to keep working until every child in Oregon has an equal opportunity for music education."
