Contribute to the Albie Pratt Fund

The Albie Pratt Fund was created with a $10,000 gift from an anonymous donor to honor a man whose life was characterized by a deep love of music and a great generosity of spirit, and who was dedicated to helping young people succeed. The Fund's purpose is to provide talented, under-served children with the means to lift themselves out of poverty and ignorance through the documented benefits that the study of music can bring.

Our goal is to make this fund a permanent endowment. If music has touched your life, please consider contributing to the Albie Pratt fund. All contributions are tax deductible, and gifts of stock are welcome. Help us make Albie’s legacy of music and generosity live on for generations to come.
