Who Are We?
Empowering youth through the power of music.
AFT-ID wants to encourage our youth to be creative. We want to match any needy child or school to an instrument that will greatly enhance their well being. The gift of music is proven to have multiple benefits, from keeping children in schools, to keeping them focused and off of drugs.
Please consider donating an instrument that you no longer use, your time for repairs or lessons, or a monetary donation to help spread the joy of music.

We are still in need of monetary donations to help a student acquire a lightweight fiberglass Sousaphone.
About Our Mission
Music Helps In All Areas Of Life
Our goal is to expand the positive influence of music in future generations by providing our youth access to instruments/tools and musical/life skills.
We match donated instruments with children, or school systems who need them most. We have also stepped into a disaster area to donate instruments to students who have lost theirs.
Children need an instrument of their own for practice outside of a classroom or lesson setting.
Many school systems have had their music budget cut year after year and they are unable to buy new instruments, or replace worn instruments. Help us help keep the music alive in schools!
Children who study a musical instrument are more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education.
