East Anchorage HS Piano Acquisition

$3,157 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 15 months
Created October 24, 2017
East Anchorage HS, a Title 1 school and recognized as the most diverse public high school in the nation, is requesting partial funding from a "gofundme" account in order to assist with the acquisition of a new grand piano. Currently we have  a 1961 Baldwin piano that needs significant repairs which would still leave us with an instrument that is 56 years old, well over the average 40 years life span of a piano.  Classic Pianos, partnering with East HS, has provided us with a new 7 foot Yamaha Grand Piano at a very reduced price.  In addition to grants, school fundraisers, and individual donors, we are seeking to raise $2,000 through a gofundme account.  

 
East High holds a unique position in Alaska. With some 2,200 students, we are the largest high school in the state. We are proud to be a three-time Grammy Signature Schools Enterprise Award recipient. Although we serve students, families, and our local community, we also provide a critical educational performance space for statewide conferences such the All-State Music Festival, and the State Solo and Ensemble Command Performances. These professional organizations serve students, parents, and educators from communities as far reaching as Barrow and Unalaska. Additionally, our 673-seat auditorium is in high demand by other schools and community groups throughout the year for events including concerts, graduations, and ceremonies. A fine grand piano, one that is ideally a performance caliber instrument and not substandard in need of ongoing critical maintenance, will support and develop these partnerships.

Hi All,
I have been overwhelmed with the generosity of friends, family and supporters of East HS and its acquisition of a new and much needed grand piano. We are $243 away from our goal of $3000. "Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education." ~Plato
If you have the availability to help us reach our goal, East HS and its community would be so grateful.
Happy New Year.

Greetings! I'm blown away by the generous support of friends, family, students, co-workers and acquaintances for this East HS Piano Acquisition fundraising campaign. Although I have reached my goal, there is actually much more to earn before the piano payments are complete. I just had no idea how wonderfully supportive everyone would be-hence the initial $2000 goal. I have revised my goal to $3500, and invite support/donations by anyone who: has been postively impacted by music education, or was an East HS T-Bird and loves their school, or who recognizes an underserved community and feels the desire to assist where there is a need. With sincerity, I thank you. ~ Melissa
