Red Note Foundation was established in remembrance of Kristen Hooker, who was dedicated to her music and the uplifting of the individual. In her memory, Red Note will Keep the Music Playing by promoting music education through scholarships, concerts and other events giving the budding musician an opportunity to promote the advancement of music in their community and in schools.

Music education has time and time again proven to be important. When you give to Red Note Foundation, you are helping us continue the legacy Kristen left and make a difference in our communities.

Donate an Instrument

Schools are always in need of instruments to loan to their students at no or discounted rental rates. Red Note Foundation can accept any instrument, in any condiiton, for just this purpose. We then take the time to inspect and, if necessary, get the instrument into working order. Using our network of music educators, we can then find the school in greatest need to receive the instrument. If you are interested, please contact us to make arrangements.
