The Players Club
As a valued member of the Players Club, you have the unique opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the lives of budding musicians in collaboration with Play It Forward and local instrument rental stores. Through this partnership, Players Club members commit to covering the instrument rental fees for students throughout the school year. Each dedicated STL Players Club member chooses to contribute a monthly rental fee, ranging from $25 to $45, or has the option to make a one-time payment for the entire school year. Your generous contribution is not only an investment in the musical journey of a young talent but is also eligible for tax deduction through the Play It Forward program. This exclusive club is tailor-made for individuals like you, providing a platform to sponsor a band or orchestra student by covering their monthly rental fees. Join us in fostering a vibrant musical community and nurturing the next generation of musicians.

In the face of widespread budget cuts affecting schools and diminishing support for arts education, the global community of music enthusiasts has devised various strategies to preserve the centrality of music in school curricula. In St. Louis, Play It Forward stands out as an exemplary manifestation of this commitment, as our local music community rallies to support students. We collectively recognize and emphasize the significance of nurturing young minds in understanding music composition, theories, and collaboration.

Extensive research underscores the manifold benefits of music education. However, a significant hurdle arises when many students find themselves unable to afford instruments, exacerbated by the school district’s inability to provide essential band instruments due to financial constraints and cuts in arts budgets. Play It Forward addresses this challenge with a viable solution.

The core mission of Play It Forward STL is to persistently identify grassroots initiatives that aid our schools and classrooms in the realm of music, irrespective of financial constraints and budget reductions. Through your invaluable support, we can actively contribute to sustaining and enriching musical education for students facing these challenges. Join us in making a difference!
