Save The Music

Since the inception of the partnership with Save The Music Foundation in 2021, The Drake Gives has raised over $500,000 for Save The Music’s public

school music education programs, with a focus in local Orange County

school districts.

the challenge

Budget constraints, lack of advocacy, infrastructure, and equipment are common challenges faced by public school districts in supporting music education – a fundamental element in the developmental stages of early childhood – and The Drake Gives is determined to change that.

the solution

While working with local stakeholders and with the help of The Drake Gives’ donations, Save The Music has identified a significant opportunity to increase music and arts participation in elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Orange County. The success of the programs starts with Save The Music’s stringent process. Grantee schools receive ongoing support for a 10-year period, and in turn, the schools are expected to build upon the program and sustain for a minimum of 10 years, ensuring that decision-makers prioritize and support music education in their day-to-day school curriculum.

the impact

In 2023, with the funds raised by The Drake Gives, Save The Music launched a partnership with the Anaheim Union High School District, providing five grants to middle and high schools in the district. Prior programs supported by Save The Music include Anaheim Elementary School District with grants for Band, Orchestra, and General Music programs, bringing Save The Music’s total impact to 33 grants in Orange County to date.
