Music Grant

      

Greenville Elks Lodge makes $3,014 donations to Music Programs at Three Greenville County schools

GREENVILLE, S.C. (October 15, 2014) – At its bi-monthly meeting, The Greenville Elks Lodge donated a total of $3,014 to three Greenville County Schools through The Music Club of Greenville.

The donations to the music teachers from Brook Glenn Elementary, Alexander Elementary School, and Tanglewood Middle School School are specifically designated to purchase new and improved music instruments and equipment for students.

“This is the third year of the partnership with the Greenville Elks Lodge," said Beth Braswell, Fundraising Chairman for The Music Club of Greenville "Each year, our teachers express their deep thanks to the Elks and share stories about how these grants for instruments create such joy and hope for their students.”

 “As important as reading, writing and math are to the success and growth of our youth, the Greenville Elks believe a well-rounded education includes the arts,” said Greenville Elks Lodge  Exalted Ruler David Loudin. “That’s why we believe contributing $3,014 to the music programs of these three Greenville County schools is so important. It’s obvious that these funds are making a difference and we look forward to a long relationship with The Music Club of Greenville and the music programs of the Greenville County schools.”

The Greenville Elks is dedicated to local programs serving the community’s youth. As a national organization and through local chapters, the Elks provide youth programs, including the annual Hoop Shoot and Soccer Shoot competitions, the Americanism Essay contest, the Dictionary Program, the largest anti-drug program in the country and the largest scholarship program for high school seniors with awards in excess of $3.3 million a year.

For more information regarding youth programs sponsored by the Elks or the Greenville Elks chapter, go to http://www.elks.org/programs/ or http://www.bpoe858.org/.

The Music Club of Greenville (MCoG) has been focused on music education for Upstate youth since its beginnings in 1906. In 2014, MCoG awarded $10,000 in scholarships, donated over $8,000 worth of used instruments refurbished for our schools, and, with the help of our community partners, directed over $11,500 in Community Grants into the music education programs of our local schools. For more information or to donate used instruments, visit www.musicclubgreenville.org.
