Primary Purpose:
I am a volunteer with the band program at my daughter’s university, (she is a Freshman bandmember). I am heading up the efforts to begin receiving much needed resources and program support by obtaining grants.

Programs requiring support include:
1. Anti-bullying/Hazing
2."Loaner" Instruments for low-income students arriving without personal instruments.
3. College-bridge program to allow incoming freshman access to 2-3 courses over the summer before the Fall academic year begins. This will help students reduce their class load (and increase success in the classes that are most difficult or to focus on the courses that are most helpful to students preparing them for their freshman year - college algebra, English composition and university life.
4. Scholarship program support, which will help increase enrollment and completion of undergraduate degrees among demographics that are under-represented (minorities, African-American males).
