These costs are estimated as of June 2017.
Join our cause with your individual donation to this valuable program. Please make a donation online or by mail so that we can buy new instruments before school begins in the fall of 2018.
Donate a musical instrument.—we can repair them, if needed, and possibly use them in our Traveling Instrument Program or loan them
to students who are unable to afford rental or ownership. In some cases after graduation the instrument becomes theirs.
Since 1991 the Music Foundation of SW Florida has been sending sets of musical instruments to the majority of Lee County Public School elementary schools (5th grades) each year. Through this program students are able to have hands-on introductory experiences with band and orchestra instruments under the direction of their music teachers. The purpose of this experience is to build interest and motivation for students to be part of a band and/or orchestra in middle school and even play an instrument for a lifetime.
