K.E.Y.S. MUSIC NEEDS YOU! donate now!

Donate to KEYS through Network for Good, here.  Donate now to fund our Bridgeport programs.  KEYS relies on individual donors as well as donations and grants from foundations and businesses with an interest in supporting the Bridgeport, CT community.
KEYS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  A copy of our non-profit certificate or most recent Form 990 is available upon request. Please contact us HERE or call us at 203.761.0150.

Donations of Securities
Many donors realize substantial tax advantages by transferring gifts of appreciated stock to KEYS. Capital gains on the amount of appreciation are avoided, and the donor receives a tax deduction for the stock's full market value on stocks owned longer than a year. Once they are transferred to the KEYS brokerage account, the stocks will immediately be sold. Please contact KEYS HERE for further information.


KEYS is looking for high school, college and adult volunteers to support musical and non-musical activities.  Do you or your high school/college-age children play an instrument or have a special skill (e.g. marketing, photography/video, event planning)?  Volunteer your time and talent with KEYS.  Musical volunteers should have multiple years of experience with one or more instruments, so that they can act as a musical role model for KEYS students. Opportunities are available during the school day, after-school and on Saturdays. Read more HERE. Please fill out the Volunteer Form or print the Volunteer Form or e-mail us HERE.


KEYS gratefully accepts gently used instruments of all sorts, including pianos.  We request financial help when pianos need to be moved.  Fill out the Instrument Donation Form here or download and print the Instrument Donation Form HERE. You can drop smaller instruments off at Elm Street Books (please leave your name and contact information).  Elm Street Books is located at 35 Elm Street in New Canaan, CT. For larger instruments, email us HERE.

Another great way to help is to host a concert in your home. KEYS will help you set up the music program and you provide the venue and audience. For more information, contact Rob Silvan, HERE.

KEYS holds musical events throughout the year that feature our KEYS students, with proceeds funding our Bridgeport music programs.
