Musical Instrument Fund
Share the joy of music and breathe fresh life into your once-loved string instruments by donating them to CREC Schools!
Give our students a chance to develop their musical talents by donating gently used or new string instruments. Your generous donation will provide new opportunities for learning to the children we serve.
Make a secure online donation to the CREC Musical Instrument Fund or send a check to: The CREC Foundation, 111 Charter Oak Avenue, Hartford, CT 06106. (100% of the proceeds will go towards purchasing instruments)
What We Need
- String instruments (60 violins and 10 cellos), gently used or new.
- Music stands
- Music equipment in good condition, such as: bows, strings, etc.
How We Will Use Them
- For musical instruction in our elementary and middle schools.
How Your Instruments Impact The Lives Of Children
- Help improve a child's academic performance. According to a National Center for Education Statistics report, students who participate in music programs report higher grades in English, Math, History and Science than those who do not participate.
- Develop a child's self-esteem and teach them discipline and perseverance.
- Give a deserving child a chance to craft their creative abilities and provide a means for personal expression.
- The average costs for a beginner Violin is around $200, and for a Cello $1,200. Your donation will help to defray some of the program costs and allow us to offer music instruction to more students.
