Trumpets4Kids Foundation Statement of Equity
The Mission Statement of Trumpets4Kids: We invest in youth by providing trumpets and mentorship to enrich their lives through music.
At Trumpets4Kids we respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages to ensure that all voices are represented and served. We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and provide equal opportunity for the youth of the Dallas/Fort Worth communities and beyond.
To ensure we reach youth of all ethnicities and social/economic environments, we have a Board of Directors formed from a cross-section of backgrounds and experiences. We contact schools with diverse populations to recruit youth who need trumpets through their music departments. The band directors identify the student or students who have shown talent with playing the instrument. Private applicants can apply on our website for a trumpet.
As an organization and Board of Directors, we are guided by these principles, and they are reflected in our vision, mission, strategic planning, programming, governance, and board composition. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion extends to our Board members and programs we develop and support.
