Support Music After School

Monetary donations made to the William Paterson University Foundation and earmarked “Music After School” will directly benefit the MAS program. We also appreciate donations of band or orchestra instruments that are in working order. (For information about donating instruments, click here [link to Donating instruments inquiry document]; You can find a donation form here [link to in-kind gift form]. Your donations help us to meet our programming goals for the next three years: 1) continuing to reach additional participants, 2) offering a second day of after-school music coaching for students already in the program, 3) providing private music lessons for truly outstanding PPS students in our program, 4) adding guitar or piano to our course offerings, and 5) expanding to at least one other school site.
