Donate Now



A donation to Blue Bear School of Music is an investment in a vibrant, established and legacy non-profit organization that improves lives one note at a time.


Our Work + Annual Impact

A lot of the kids in our Community Programs would have never played music without Blue Bear. With the continued slashing of funding for the arts in public schools, and historically underserved communities, Blue Bear continues to be an asset that is introducing kids to music – changing their lives forever.

A few reasons why our work is important:

  • Music gives young people a way to express themselves, even to find themselves.
  • Making music together gives people a positive social experience.
  • Learning music enhances brainpower and improves academic performance

In-Kind + Item Donations

Do you have a keyboard you bought yourself for Christmas and realized you have no time to play? We accept all kinds of items. Here are some examples of things we’re always looking for:

  • Keyboard, Guitars, Ukelele’s and other instruments in good condition
  • 2011 and newer iMacs, MacBooks, iPads, Macbook Airs etc.
  • Gift Certificates
  • Cars, boats, yachts and other running vehicles

While we wish we could take everything, please email with item names and pictures first.
