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 enthusiasm.

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.

To enable more aspiring young musicians to experience playing in the band, we have established a  band instrument fund at the Hillsdale County Community Foundation to receive your tax-deductible donations for this purpose.

Your donations will be disbursed 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 about this need.

If you would like more information about the 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 music,
