We are a fully volunteer-driven organization created to raise money to support music for Calaveras County schools.  We are a separate organization from the school districts.  

We would hope to sustain and grow the funds for the organization so that 1) assistance of various types and natures could be provided to Music Education over the years, 2) if necessary and if other programs are not able to raise the money they need,  then we could step forward to assist.

We have developed strategic partnerships with the school district and other organizations to build sustainable music programs by raising the funds needed to supplement and potentially fully support music education for Calaveras County schools.

Our goal? To give every child in the district access to music education.

We are a group of people dedicated to restoring music education in Calaveras Unified School District and raising awareness about the importance of music as a part of each child’s complete education.

The Calaveras Youth Organization founded the Calaveras SAVE Campaign because MUSIC MATTERS   Why does Music Matter?
1. Creativity, teamwork and fun at school
2. Music is a bond between people, cultures and language
3. Promotes Self Esteem, builds character and purpose.

Dollars raised will be placed into our 501c3 organization The full amount of the money will be available for grants and scholarships for music educators and students in Calaveras County.
