Two strangers named John and Dawna heard Heather's situation and donated $15,000 to keep the Conservatory's doors open.
The Kelly Clarkson Show heard the news of the couple's donation and invited Heather, John, and Dawna on the show to share their story.
Kelly's show reached out to us after hearing Heather's story, and we were thrilled to donate an additional $5,000 to help her school, making sure that the next generation of musicians is supported and cared for.
We are so grateful for the Guitar Center Foundation's donation which will give us a chance at survival in the post-covid world. Thank you for keeping the music alive, even through the challenges of an unprecedented worldwide pandemic," said Leverich.
All of this is possible thanks to YOU and your donations to the Guitar Center Music Foundation. We have so many great grants in the works, and we are so grateful to get to help these schools thanks to the amazing contributions you've made to our Foundation.
Stay inspired, and we look forward to sharing more news about our grants as they come to light!
