Since 2014, your generous donations to the Matt Klee Memorial Fund have resulted in donations totaling more than $19,000 to Hood River County Schools. These funds have been used to repair and refurbish used instruments; purchase state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment for elementary school music teachers at Mid Valley and Parkdale elementary schools; and for the purchase of new instruments including a baritone saxophone, acoustic guitar, recorders, and mountain dulcimers for students in elementary school through high school.
Our partnership between the Matt Klee Memorial Fund, the Committee for the Music Festival of the Gorge, and Arts in Education of the Gorge makes this fundraising and distribution of money happen. Your generosity makes it all possible. From the bottom of our Matt-loving, music-loving hearts, we thank you.
