Ukuleles for Schoo Middle School

Students at Schoo have been serenaded by faculty and staff playing the ukulele, but have not had the opportunity to learn the instrument. Students have shown great interest in learning how to play chords on the instrument to accompany their favorite songs.

To accommodate all our Schoo students, we are asking for 50 ukuleles. Each instrument is approximately $40.00 each. We would appreciate anything that you have to give to help us accomplish our musical goal! Requesting $2,000 plus cost reimbursement.

We would like to purchase some items that our students could then pick from as their reward for doing well. Things like gift cards for food, coffee, retail, bowling passes, etc. We would appreciate the donation and support!

Sustain Pangea

PANgea is seeking funds to help cover annual steel drum tuning costs of $2,000.

The  Need:

Each year, PANgea performs at many events throughout the Lincoln community. In order to keep the steel drums in tune with each other, we must bring in a specialist to hand-hammer each note for all of our steel drums. This is a delicate and time-intensive process that only a handful of people in the U.S. are qualified to do.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and limited performance opportunities, PANgea was unable to have the steel pans tuned this year. We hope to raise funds for this expense so that we can have them tuned prior to the 2021-2022 performing season.

About PANgea

Founded in 2003, PANgea is the only group of its kind in Nebraska. We provide unique musical opportunities to middle and high school students throughout the city of Lincoln while serving as an ambassador for LPS and the arts within our public schools. There is no budget allotted for PANgea. As a result, performances and donations help sustain the group.

Thank you for considering a gift to PANgea! Requesting $2,000 plus cost reimbursement.
