Help At-Risk Teens Find Hope & Work Through Music!

Your Matched Gift Makes a Musical Path Forward Possible

Happy December, Friends. This new campaign provides free after school musical learning for at-risk high school students who are eager to learn! You’ll get a 100% dollar-for-dollar match that doubles the benefits you can provide for teens who live at and below the poverty level in marginalized communities. Their challenges and burdens are great, but learning to play guitar, sing, and compose music with other students makes their troubles lighter. Often, it restores their delight, curiosity, creativity, and a sense of possibility.


Our free after-school guitar clubs, called “Strummers Clubs” provide students, who are persevering through hardship, with restorative instruction, a safe learning community, and creative fellowship. They develop real musical skills to last a lifetime and launch a healthier future. These services exceed what school districts can provide. Thanks to discounts from our instrument manufacturer sponsors, and gifts from individual donors, every student receives a beautiful instrument they can call their own. Since 2022, we have tripled our clubs, but we want to do more. With your caring support, GITC will move forward to reach hundreds more at-risk youth through musical learning in the months and years ahead.

 

Your tax-deductible donation can make dreams come true in 2024. With the help of guitar-playing pros from the worlds of performance, music therapy, healing arts, music production, technology, and music education, high school students will be able to discover ways to make music a part of their futures. We also plan to start a paid GITC internship program for seniors who are graduating from our program. Our dream- and plan- is to build a workforce development aspect to Strummers Clubs that teens anywhere will be able to access.


Please help us reach these goals by making a donation to this fundraiser today. When you do, the Vice President of our Board of Directors, former kindergarten teacher Ruth Haller, will double your donation with hers, up to the first $10,000 contributed!

 

From all of us working and volunteering with Guitars and Ukes in the Classroom, thank you for giving your time, consideration, and charity to this cause. Your support truly matters.

 

Wishing you a healthy holiday and a happy new year!
