Mission Statement

Guitars 4 Gifts, or G4G, is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides musical instruments and teaching aids to underprivileged youth through established organizations.

Description

Guitars 4 Gifts has been working for the past five years to bring the gift of music to all youth.

To date, Guitars 4 Gifts has given away almost 70 guitars to organizations such as Kids on Stage Summer Academy, W.O. Smith School of Music, Liberty Collegiate Academy, Ronald McDonald House Charities, The Music Therapy Program at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, and The Boys' and Girls' Clubs of Rutherford County.

Guitars 4 Gifts has shown how a guitar can make a huge impact on one person's life. While giving a guitar to the Ronald McDonald House, G4G was able to make a young boy smile for the first time in months, simply by playing him a Johnny Cash song. Another mother saw her child receive his guitar in tears. She later explained how much he loved music, but how they were unable to afford an instrument for him to practice on. Because of the generosity of so many people, G4G has been able to bring the joy of music to almost 70 youth.

In September of 2016, Guitars 4 Gifts launched their Ambassador program. The purpose of this program is to help young people to give the gift of music in their community and to foster a love of non-profit work in young people.

There have been multiple articles published about G4G, including articles in SixDegrees.org and The Women's International Music Network. Guitars 4 Gifts also did a radio interview with Lightning 100 in Nashville, TN.

In the next few years, Guitars 4 Gifts would like to grow to be able to give guitars away nationally and internationally on a regular basis.
