Brothers Gow Music Foundation (BGMF) is a non-profit with the primary goal of donating instruments to the K-12 classrooms of San Diego. Members of Brothers Gow know the value of music education first hand, and are intent on contributing efforts to keep music accessible to the youth of Southern California. With budget cutting in the arts and humanities in San Diego, music programs have been the first go.
The first fundraiser, held in Ocean Beach (2013), raised enough money to put a guitar in each of the 18 classrooms of Ocean Beach Elementary. From there several more fundraisers have been held, with stringed intstruments being donated to Dana Middle School, as well as collaborative programs with Point Loma High School, and the Society for Autism
In the Fall of 2015, Brothers Gow was delighted and humbled to be awarded “Programs for Youth Award” by the Ocean Beach Town Council and “Certificate of Special Recognition” by the House of Representatives for their philanthropic contributions to their home town. The band looks forward to what the future will bring for their local community and continuing to spread the power of music to their beloved hometown.
