Note from the Chairman

Hi everyone,
We at the Rheuben Allen Education Foundation would like to thank all the people that have supported us for 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
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.
Rheuben Allen

We work with other Non-Profit Organizations to help get instruments to children.
Dave Koz with Curved Soprano SaxophoneWe are very happy to announce that the foundation will shortly have 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.

Kenny and RheubenFor 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 children.
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 band leaders in history.  These instruments will bring joy and pleasure to many children around the world..
