About The Drake Gives
The Drake Gives is a nonprofit 501c3 whose mission is to connect, inspire and provide underdeserved youth with the music education, materials and instruments they need and deserve to fuel their passions and experience the power of music.
The Founder of The Drake and The Drake Gives, Alec Glasser, learned to play the saxophone in a public school when he was 12. That experience profoundly shaped his life in ways he never dreamed possible -- his wish is for all kids to be able to have the same opportunity in their public school education.
