Our Year End Campaign

This holiday season, help us put free musical instruments into the hands of Hamilton youth.

We believe in the power of music, especially during the holiday season.

This year, you can help us provide instruments to children in our two new partner schools, Bennetto Elementary and Westwood Elementary. We’re eager to expand the AIFEC program to our 14th and 15th Hamilton school at absolutely no cost to the students, their families, or the school – but we can’t do it without your support.

You can purchase an instrument, make a donation in honour of a loved one, or support one of our advanced programs like the new free AIFEC String Ensemble. Your gift will ensure that even more children in our community experience the joy of music this time of year, and year-round.

Thank you to all of our donors. We raised over $10 000 and with the generous donation from Jillard Guitar’s 99 James North we have well surpassed our goal of $15 000! THANK YOU!
