The D’Addario Foundation and Guitar Center on May 8 teamed up to raise more than $45,000 on International Women’s Day to donate to the Music Education for Girl’s Initiative. On that day, half of the proceeds from all D’Addario products sold at Guitar Center and on guitarcenter.com were donated to the D’Addario Foundation.
This new funding will go toward a number of opportunities for young women the D’Addario Foundation supports, including free instrument instruction, college scholarships and all-female programming.
“The D’Addario Foundation is incredibly appreciative of the positive response and support for this initiative,” said Suzanne D’Addario Brouder, director of The D’Addario Foundation. “We are thrilled to continue to build on this valuable partnership with Guitar Center to collectively further efforts to support and encourage more young women in music. Together we can continue to make a meaningful difference.”
