Welcome to the Amherst Red Barn Music School

Valley Gives Day - thank you for your support!

Every day is Valley Gives Day in our part of the world. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Friends of the Red Barn, Catherine Sanderson, Chair, our 501c3 nonprofit. Thank you if you have supported us in the past, and, if this is your first time giving to support music for everyone, thank you for joining us.

Valley Gives Day is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts. Last year, we raised $2+ million for nonprofits that directly affect us in our daily life.

If you would like to find other Amherst nonprofits, too, I set up a website, AmherstGives.org with a list of 45 Amherst nonprofits where you can support your favorite nonprofits, including the Red Barn.

Please consider including us in your tax-deductible year-end giving. Pass it on.
