100% of every dollar you donate to the D’Addario Foundation goes directly to supporting our partner organizations.A note from our director
For over 30 years the 501c3 non-profit D’Addario Foundation has been proud to support grassroots not-for-profit organizations that bring music instruction and the gift of music to those that might not otherwise have the opportunity. We support programs that bring music back to schools, provide scholarship assistance so that students can attend music schools and camps, and fund after- school music education programs that provide a safe haven for kids in disadvantaged areas. We pride ourselves on our ability to identify the finest quality programs with the deepest impact to support.
There is a critical need now to support music education. Help us build healthier communities by investing in the positive development of children through music. A small donation will go a very long way to assist these organizations and people that work tirelessly to bring the magical experience of music to others.
We are grateful for your support and belief in our mission!
Sincerely, Suzanne D’Addario Brouder
I want my donation to go to a diverse range of impactful music education programs in areas of great need.
MUSIC EDUCATION FOR GIRLS INITIATIVE
I would like to dedicate funding to provide girls with advanced learning opportunities, scholarships, and transformative musical experiences that foster both personal and professional growth.
** All donations made in this category in March 2021 will be MATCHED by D’Addario & Company.
The D’Addario Foundation, in collaboration with Canadian luxury brand, Heartstrings Jewelry, is elevating quality of life through access to music. Purchase an exclusive Elevate Necklace, and 100% of the proceeds will go towards financing community music programs in areas of need.
The Elevate Necklace is a custom creation that transforms retired acoustic and electric guitar strings into a stunning handcrafted sterling silver pendant engraved with the D’Addario Foundation’s symbol of community support. The pendant is set against a fine, adjustable sterling silver chain. See photos & learn more at ddar.io/elevate.
VIRTUAL MUSIC EDUCATION
A shining light in this new normal is the effectiveness of music instruction in distance learning. Our champions, the hundreds of organizations we support on the front line providing multiple days a week of music instruction, have proven their scrappiness and resiliency. Our goal is to rally enough support to ensure we can provide our grassroots programs the stability needed to continue to serve their students in creative and effective ways.
Music has never been more important as both an escape and an effective way to turn the wheels of the brain on in our children.
COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Thanks to a generous gift from the Rita and Herbert Z. Gold Trust the D’Addario Foundation Scholarship Fund was created. In 2019 we will award 10 scholarships to attend college to students in our best partner programs. I want to dedicate my support to the D’Addario Foundation College Scholarship Fund so more students will be encouraged to apply to and attend college and receive the necessary assistance to make that a reality.
