Dear Friends of Music in Our Schools,
We have good
news about the Hillsdale High School Band. Since Dr. Keith Rushing became the band director
several years ago the band has steadily increased in both members and
Today we have an unique opportunity to help Dr. Rushing maintain
this great momentum.
Although most band members rent or buy their
instruments, some students need to use instruments provided by the
school. There is currently a waiting list of students who would like to
be in the band if more instruments would become available.
We can enable these aspiring young musicians to experience playing in
the band by helping Dr. Rushing acquire additional instruments for
them to use.
Working with Dr. Rushing, we have established a new fund at the
Hillsdale County Community Foundation to receive your tax deductible
donations to the band instrument fund. Your donation will be disbursed
directly to the
Hillsdale Community Schools, earmarked for the high school band and
specifically for instrument purchases and repairs.
In the short
video below Dr. Rushing shares more information.
If you would like more
information about the Hillsdale Community Schools Band Instrument Fund,
we invite you to contact the Hillsdale County Community Foundation or contact me
directly by email or telephone.
Thank you for giving the gift of
