Note from the Chairman:
We at the Rheuben Allen Education Foundation would like to thank all the people that have supported us in the past. Your generosity has made it possible for us to provide over 200 plus instruments to underprivileged deserving students and other non-profit organizations. But our work is not done… and we still need your help to continue enriching the lives of children through music.
We know time are tough and there are a lot of good non-profit organizations asking you for money… we are looking for people that love music and want to help children to donate $5, $10, $15 or $20 a month to help us keep giving the gift of music to these kids. And of course, any one-time donation is really appreciated.
We have several noted musicians that have allowed us to make signature instruments to provide these children, Kenny G, Dave Koz, Count Basie and others.
All the Board of Directors, Board of Advisors and staff are volunteers. We have a very low overhead and 95% of the money donated goes to provide the kids with instruments. As the manufacturer of the instruments we can give more bang for the buck since there is no middle man.
Thanks you for your time and generosity.
We work with other Non-Profit Organizations to help get instruments to children.
We are very happy to announce that the foundation has a Dave Koz Silver Plated Curved B-Flat Soprano to offer to the young saxophonist. Dave has a few now he is using to raise money for a Non-Profit that helps kids.
Dave Koz click here just in case you might not know who Dave is:
For the past couple years we have already offered the Kenny G Young Artist Series Alto Saxophone to students.
Kenny believes in helping keep music in the schools and helping deserving young musicians get good quality instruments. The Kenny G Young Artist Series Alto Saxophone is only made for RAEF and not sold.

Through an arrangement with the Count Basie Estate Rheuben Allen is producing a line of Count Basie Band Instruments for us to provide to deserving young people.
I am so happy to be able to use the name Count Basie on instruments we provide kids. It is one of the great names in the world of music and he was one of the greatest big band leaders in history. These instruments will bring joy and pleasure to many children around the world..

Rheuben Allen Education Foundation Mission Statement
Our mission is to enrich, balance and advance the lives of impoverished kids (K- 12) through music. The Rheuben Allen Education Foundation donates brand new traditional instruments to foundations, schools, churches, organizations and individuals who demonstrate a need for and commitment to playing and/or teaching the instrument(s). The Rheuben Allen Education Foundation also provides quality music education videos and master classes by iconic players and educators that relate to music, playing musical instruments and instrument maintenance.
Why I started the Rheuben Allen Education Foundation
When I was a young man growing up in Oklahoma I was not a very good student. I had an eye problem that made it hard for me to read without getting a headache so I didn’t like to read. My parents were told I had a learning disability and was for the most part very overweight. My self-esteem was not good. My sister’s boyfriend Ed (who later became her husband) played the saxophone and I thought I would like to play the saxophone. Well the band director talked my father into having me play the clarinet… as I began to improve and found I could do something good my self-esteem grew. Playing the clarinet has changed my life and I want to offer that chance to other deserving young people.
