BUMP brings identity-affirming music instruction to children who would not otherwise have a chance to receive it: kids who live in public housing, kids who live in high-crime neighborhoods, and low-income children in general. There is a great need to expand our programs to more children who arrive home on the bus while parents are still at work.

We need your help to bring these bright engaging children instruction on band and orchestra instruments and beyond! Our talented staff also teaches chorus, dance & drumming and songwriting.

We invite you to join this work and there are many ways for you to help. Contact us to donate a musical instrument. Go to our website to learn about volunteer opportunities. Donate now to ensure that our youth can build on their cultural heritage and experience a strong positive identity.

Your gift will give children skills that support academic and life success through musical proficiency, cultural literacy and resilience. Please give today. You will be preparing our youth for a lifetime of music-making, positive identity and achievement.

You helped us raise $15,000 in individual donations last fiscal year. Help us raise $25,000 in individual donations this fiscal year and expand the educational impact.

Make your tax-deductible donation now. Or you can mail a check to BUMP | 504 W. Chapel Hill St | Durham NC 27701
