At The Newcombe Foundation, we believe every student should have the opportunity to learn how to play a musical instrument.

Unfortunately, we realize that this is not a financial possibility for many students in Washington state.

Because of this, we help students who cannot afford musical instruments to acquire brand new ones so they may begin their musical training.

We realize the benefits a musical education can provide to students and are trying to make it possible for students to attain this training through their schooling curriculum.
