Manage episode 326074350 series 2918965
Dendy Jarrett, Executive Director Gibson Cares, visits with The Trout about how Gibson Cares has been helping thousands of needy musicians and nonprofits with new guitars and their business expertise. For over 125 years Gibson has been shaping, contributing, and supporting sound through their guitars…across many generations and genres of music. In 2002 the Gibson Foundation was officially established (as a 501(c)3) and has since provided thousands of guitars and related value-in-kind and donations in excess of $30m. Organizations such as Guitars 4 Vets have been provided free guitars to veterans suffering with physical injuries, PTSD, and other emotional distress. Unlike many non-profits, 100% of donations go towards giving the gift of music. Learn about all of the promising and wonderful programs that Gibson Gives have assisted with to grow musical awareness in non-profit organizations across the USA and beyond.
