Organ installed
This is the Antiphonal organ installed at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Issaquah WA. Volunteers did 95% of the work on this organ including its installation (see http://www.pipeorganfoundation.org/news/current_news10.html).

Volunteers are needed to do hands on work in the rebuilding of pipe organs which have been discarded due to closure of churches and other reasons. See the Volunteers page in www.pipeorganfoundation.org for pictures and information about the things volunteers do. The organs are repaired and customized for public settings where a pipe organ is desired and would be played regularly but where it cannot be afforded. Volunteers in the Foundation may also assist in settings with limited funds where pipe organs are in place but where they are in need of repair and tuning.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Pipe Organ Foundation is to charitably promote the preservation, placement, and playing of pipe organs for the good of the public.

Description

With guided volunteer labor, the Pipe Organ Foundation rebuilds quality pipe organs that have been discarded and places them in public settings where a pipe organ is desired and would be regularly used but where it cannot be afforded. Where pipe organs exist in public settings with limited funds, the Foundation helps to repair and maintain those organs at minimal cost. The Foundation also encourages youth to learn to play the pipe organ.
