Every week, Keeping the Blues Alive chooses a different school to donate resources, including instruments, sheet music, and recording equipment, that further the growth and impact of music education. Since our founding in 2011, we have donated over $600,000 in instruments, sheet music, supplies and more, enriching the lives of over 70,000 students and teachers across the country!
Alongside our weekly donations, we also fund merit-based scholarships and can proudly say that we have supported students at some of the finest music programs in the country including The Juilliard School, Berklee College of Music, Musicians Institute, Broward College and more! This year, we are excited to announce that proceeds from the Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea Mediterranean Fundraisers will provide scholarships for the Berklee Valencia Summer program.
Throughout the year, we choose grants that support music education projects and services such as the Stevie Ray Vaughan Memorial Scholarship Fund and the Heartsong Fund! Most recently we contributed to Music is Your Ali, a weekly music lesson program hosted within the redeveloped Historic Ali Cultural Arts facility in Pompano Beach, FL. Students receive free, one-on-one music instruction by some of the most active, qualified musicians in the area!
