Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada the Barry Penny Foundation is a non-profit organization that offers musical instruments and lessons to kids. We get our instruments through donations from our musical connections and friends of the Foundation.
The Barry Penny Foundation is all about kids and music. Our vision is to make sure that every child who has an interest in exploring music is given an opportunity to do so. With education cutbacks in schools and our economy overall, we understand that not every child is in a situation where instruments and music lessons can be afforded.Over the last three years, the directors of our organization have been able to deliver guitars, mandolins, keyboards and drums to a number of youngsters from Calgary to Fort St. John, BC who came to us through their parents or other recommendations. These children were set up with either a new or a gently used instrument and lessons to get them started. The foundation will continue supporting the child in lessons with continued interest.
