Everybody Deserves Music is fiscally sponsored by the Los Angeles Leadership Academy, a California charter school and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The Los Angeles Leadership Academy was founded in 2001 and serves middle and high school students in the Lincoln Heights area. Its mission is to prepare urban secondary students to succeed in college or on chosen career paths, to live fulfilling, self-directed lives, and to be effective in creating a just and humane world. It also aims to provide students with opportunities to take action on important social issues, to work alongside community mentors, and to enhance the learning power of these experiences through reflection and skill development in the classroom.
