About Acoustic for a Change
Instrument Donation Program
Our primary ministry goal is to collect, refurbish and place musical instruments in the hands of underprivileged children or organizations that work with them. Performing for Charity Events provides an audience to get the word out and Private Events provide the revenue to purchase instruments. It’s all about donated instruments!
Charity/Fundraising Event Support
Acoustic for a Change provides Live Music and Event Support for Charity events with over 50 attendees. Our ministry offers reduced rates for the opportunity to introduce our Instrument Donation Program. Our fee of $125 (up to 3 hrs) which is enough to purchase a beginner guitar for an underprivileged child. We also request a brief announcement about our donation program and the ability to setup a small info table. Our goal is use our talents to add value by coming alongside your event and blessing the lives of underprivileged children. AFAC has a variety of event professionals who offer to give back to worthwhile causes like yours in Southern California and Central Florida. For Private Events all our fees go toward purchasing musical instruments.
In 2006, Arturo Echarte, founder of AFAC, decided to hand over the reigns to his successful Florida Printing/Marketing company so that he could focus on giving back to worthwhile causes. While offering to play guitar at a local charity event Arturo was asked about how to donate an instrument that an attendee had at home. That night the idea of starting AFAC was sparked. Offering discounted rates to play at charity events for the opportunity to get the word out about AFAC’s Instrument Donation Program. It’s a Win-Win for both. Through the years AFAC has placed hundreds of instruments in the hands of underprivileged children. Changing lives one event and one instrument at a time.
