Ways to Donate



Did you know that supporters like you are the reason AMEF has been able to continue to provide opportunities for music education and appreciation for Albertans?

Right now the Government of Alberta is offering organizations such as ours the opportunity to fundraise on their crowdfunding platform. We are hoping to raise $7,500 and ensure the gift of music reaches even further. As a bonus, if we raise a minimum of $2,000 from at least 5 donors by March 19, 2024, we will be eligible for matching funding!

One of the great programs offered by AMEF is Keyboards for Kids.

Keyboards for Kids has offered hundreds of at-risk children across Alberta for over 25 years the opportunity to participate in piano lessons (in participating schools or community centres) during their lunch hour, during school or after school thanks to the dedicated support of volunteer teachers. Our goal is to provide free music instruction in the area of piano to interested, at-risk or disadvantaged youth and to enhance personal characteristics such as self-esteem, creativity, self-discipline and personal expression so that the students can become noble and caring citizens of their community and better overall students.

Would you be willing to help us by donating? With a gift, you will be helping to support and be a part of ensuring our amazing program, Keyboards for Kids, reaches as many students as possible.
