East Allen Community Youth Band | Rachel Kesar, East Allen County Schools

The project is to strengthen a newly established youth band serving East Allen University (EAU) students and the Southeast Fort Wayne community by providing operational funding. This ensemble (EACYB) provides band education to students who otherwise have no opportunity to play in a band after their 8th grade year due to the high school they attend. Donations will provide the band with instruments, materials, new music and will help to advertise on social media. Funding will allow for local instructors, musicians, and clinicians to work with the ensemble to build toward successful student performances in Spring of 2025.

All gifts are matched dollar for dollar, up to $1,000, by PNC Bank.
