We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) that provides scholarships to young musicians to any accredited summer music camp in the United States. Scholarships are made possible through the generous donations from the alumni and friends of Arrowbear Music Camp, matching grants, and from members of the general public who support music education.

Donations Spring & Summer 2019

Many, many thanks to the friends and alumni of Arrowbear who donated to our Scholarship Fund. Donations from the Spring Newsletter totaled $9,812. That's a good start in building the scholarship bucket for next summer. All of the donations will go toward scholarships for 2020. 

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 mail box and hear how you’re doing and what is keeping you busy. Please keep in touch and give when you can.
