Donations Spring & Summer 2023
Many, many thanks to the alumni and friends of Arrowbear who donated to our Scholarship Fund. Donations from the Spring Newsletter totaled $8,612.04. We are particularly grateful because we know these are still difficult times with costs rising weekly for food and other necessities. All of the donations will go toward scholarships for Summer 2024.
Every donation is appreciated. We receive amounts from $10 to hundreds of dollars. It all adds up. Don’t worry about waiting until you can give more at some point in the future. Any amount makes a difference. It’s always a wonderful surprise to visit the mailbox and hear how you’re doing and what is keeping you busy. Please keep in touch and give when you can. We love to hear from you.

Long Beach Gives 2023
Long Beach Gives is an annual event designed to encourage donations to non-profits who are based in the city. We are so grateful to the Long Beach community for supporting our scholarship program to provide private lessons to young musicians in the Long Beach Unified School District. This program provides a series of twelve thirty-minute lessons to one student at each of the district's middle, K-8, and high schools each semester. This year we raised $3,099.59. Thank you to all the donors.
