Giving Voice to Potential since 1939
Individual and Planned Giving


Students in Lucinda

Gifts from individuals keep art and music in schools, today and tomorrow.

At a time when music and art programs are disappearing from schools, the Guild’s Education Programs are more critical than ever. We depend on your support to develop programs that inspire students to make positive choices and become creative thinkers, innovators and conscientious, intelligent and culturally aware adults. Because of your vital contributions, every year more than 64,000 students in over 200 schools throughout Northern California receive the benefits of arts and music education.
