OrgelkidsCAN Fundraiser
Sharing the joy and wonder of the pipe organ and its music with children

The Royal Canadian College of Organists is raising funds forOrgelkidsCAN, a project that will introduce children to the wonders and music of the pipe organ by providing them with an opportunity to learn about, build, and play, a miniature two-rank pipe organ.

The Orgelkids organ is a complete, craftsman-built organ. It arrives in a box that contains all the required parts along with assembly instructions and a complete set of educational materials. During the building phase, which takes about an hour, children learn about the technical aspects of the mechanics of a pipe organ and discover how the sound is created. And, of course, when the organ is built, they play it! When they are done, the kit is disassembled and put back in the box for the next group of children.

Our vision is to produce 8 travelling Orgelkids kits for use by children in schools, music festivals, science fairs, and museums across Canada.

To make this vision a reality we need your help. If you are already among our donors, we thank you! If not, please consider joining our growing circle of supporters. The OrgelkidsCAN fundraiser is open until December 31. We are grateful for donations of all sizes – every donation will help us reach our goal and every donation up to $25,000 will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to the generosity of a bequest from the late Kenneth Inkster.
