Quality Matters

CFKF provides grants for high quality instruments because these instruments are: easier to tune and play, contribute to a better and more effective classroom, are tonally superior, have better durability and longevity, and inspire kids to practice and stay involved with their music program.

Make a Difference

When you donate to CFKF, you provide innumerable benefits to children that they carry into their other life and academic experiences:

  • The joy and pride of doing something well
  • Improved self-discipline and coordination
  • Improved learning and success in school
  • Immersion in the great classical music culture
