Your generous gifts to Music in Catholic Schools gives deserving students the opportunity to keep music in their lives. With your help we can offer reduced tuition to even more students. A special opportunity is the Brian Smith Memorial Fund.
Brian Smith Memorial Fund
Brian Smith was a former MCS student who died in 2008 at age 20 of a heart defect while on a UNL science/spring break trip to Puerto Rico. Brian was a wonderful musician who got his start on percussion in MCS. Please help us remember Brian by giving a gift to the Brian Smith Memorial Fund.
You can help Music in Catholic Schools continue its mission to provide band instruction to all. Take a look at our Wish List and sponsor a student or help offset the costs of performances. Or, take a look at our Memorials and Honorariums list to make a memorial gift to our endowment fund or a donation in honor of a loved one.
