Did you know that MILLIONS of kids in the U.S receive NO music education at school? Academy of the Gifted provides instruments and lessons to kids in all communities AND teaches kids the musical styles they love.
The Academy of the Gifted is a nonprofit 501(C)(3) tax exempt organization. We are expanding through the 2018 school year and are projecting between 150-200 kids for our 2018 summer camp. At this time we are looking to increase our equipment quality and number of units. Our staff and personal resources have allowed us to effectively coach 55 students in our 2017 summer camp but with an increase of students, we need an increase in resources, staff and equipment. Believers, the community already looks to us as a crucial ingredient in the Gastonia area says the "2018 Community Impact Award" received by Founder and executive Director William Blount at the Denomis Awards show.
We are blessed to be able to use our gifts, give back to the community and inspire the next generation to be creators and self-thinkers.
