Lead Guitar Carlos Bonell

DONATE. Lead Guitar relies on donations from grants, foundations, and individuals to be able to provide free and low-cost programs to schools in need. Therefore, we do our best to make the most out of every penny! This starts with choosing the right donation option for you.

Three Ways to Donate...

Paper or Electronic Check

It's tough to beat the security of a paper check, whether written by hand or initiated by your bank. Please make checks payable to:

Lead Guitar

PO Box 40206

Tucson, AZ 85717-0206

ACH Transfer

Our preferred option! ACH stands for Automated Clearing House transfer and is sent directly from one bank account to another. Call or Email to request our Routing number and Checking account number, and you can transfer funds directly from your bank account to ours. For most banks, this can be done at no charge!

We can now accept debit and credit card donations by clicking on the yellow PayPal Donate button at the lower left of this page. There, you can indicate how you would like your donation spent. If you make no designation, we will use it towards the area of greatest need.

Keep in mind, PayPal charges 2.9% per transaction. We love PayPal's convenience for donations under about $5,000, but for larger donations, methods 1 & 2 are preferred so that all of your funds go directly to the schools and students that need it most.
