Putting No Longer Used Musical Instruments to Use

Check your closets, under the bed, in the attic, or any other hiding place where you might have stored your child’s old musical instrument so YOU can help another student play a musical instrument.

In 2014, the Foundation learned that each year some students could not enroll in a band or orchestra class because the loaner instrument pool was not large enough to meet the number of students seeking an instrument.

The DDEF Musical Instrument Campaign began. This year-round campaign is truly worthwhile! It gives students the opportunity to take a band or orchestra class who otherwise would not be able to participate. To date, an extra 26 students each year can participate in these classes. Thanks to generous donations, the following instruments are now available to David Douglas students:

  •  2 Cellos

  • 6 Clarinets

  • 1 Coronet

  • 2 Electronic Keyboards

  • 6 Flutes

  • 1 Trombone

  • 1 Trumpet

  • 3 Saxophones (2 Alto, 1 Tenor)

  • 4 Violins

With your donations, we hope that no child will be turned away from enrolling in a band or orchestra class. See “How to Donate a Musical Instrument”  for donation instructions.

Thank you for your support!
