Our need

  1. Eubanks Conservatory of Music and Arts is endeavoring to raise $450,000 so that we can purchase a modest 2,000 square feet building.  We have been in business since 1951. We are an I.R.S. determined 501 (c) 3, charitable organization. Our Determination Letter permits donors to deduct contributions provided in section 170 of the code. Bequest, legacies, devises, transfers, gifts and currency are deductible for Federal estate and gift tax purposes, if they meet the applicable provisions of section 2055, 2106 and 2522 of the Code.
  2. Please help us. Your help will allow us to provide “free after school cultural arts classes” for 150 t0 200 students. Our objective is to reduce the recidivism rate that lack key students are prone to engage in.
  3. Drugs, gangs, sex, graffiti, vandalism, and destructive behavior is on the upraise. We can reduce this destructive behavior significantly by offering the school districts, cities and communities a positive alternative.
  4. Research has shown that students in areas that provide after school cultural arts program has a 50% to 80% lower rate in these non-productive statistics
  5. When we look at the education rating systems for 200 counters the United Sate of America is rated 33, on the rating system. The top 10 countries on the educational rating system are:  1. Finland, 2. South Korea, 3. Hong Kong, 4. Japan, 5. Singapore, 6. United Kingdom, 7. Netherlands, 8. New Zealand, 9. Switzerland, and 10. Canada
  6. These countries, and impressively Finland for being number one for over 5 decades, attributed the catalyst to their success to a forged alliance with local governments, school districts and communities. In addition, the mandated cultural arts programs, for every student, is designed with specific pedagogical level of cultural arts classes for the enjoyment of learning and it cover dance, acting and drama, singing, all musical instruments and sculpturing. The program is fund by the government and private industry.
  7. Here is a synopsis on the history of Eubanks Conservatory of Music and Arts and the founder Dr. Rachel Eubanks written May 13, 2006 by Jocelyn Y. Stewart, L.A. Times Staff Writer.
  8. Dr. Eubanks earned a bachelor’s degree in music from UC Berkeley, a master’s from Columbia University and a doctorate from Pacific Western University, which was based in Los Angeles and is now in San Diego.
  9. It was on October 25, 2012 when Louis Lee 11 became the new CEO/President, of the organization, that he appointed a new Board of Director’s, enacted a new Business and Vision Plan and redirected the organization on the path of a vitalized purpose.  
  10. Since that time, we have instructed our cultural arts program at two local school districts, while concurrently instructing guitar classes and private lessons. But with the economical influx of the economy we have dwindled down to 25 students.
  11. How your donation can make a difference? We can only instruct 25 students, at a time, because of space, limited available hours and flexibility. Through your donation we would be able to instruct 150 to 200 students, in a variety of cultural arts and at more convenient hours. Our students would have access to the facility for private and group instruction, rehearsals, group meetings, practicing sessions and more.  The facility would be open and available for the summer long break, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter as well as being opened on all celebratory one day Holidays.
