DONATE TO YOUTH PIPES & DRUMS

Youth Pipes & Drums Program

Proudly supported by

The Nova Scotia International Tattoo Foundation through the Youth Pipes & Drums Program supports the development of Highland bagpiping and pipe band drumming in Nova Scotia by providing cash grants and instrument loans and donations to youth oriented non-profit organizations.

Our investments will assist these organizations with costs associated with membership, tuition, travel to major competitions, uniforms and equipment, and professional development.

The program aims to advance education and encourage youth in Nova Scotia to participate in the Highland bagpipe and pipe band drumming arts. Youth who participate in music programs develop skills that help them in life, learning and work.

Additionally, this program will foster development and growth of Highland bagpiping and pipe band drumming in Nova Scotia, cultivate artistic excellence locally, nationally and internationally, and increase participation of Nova Scotian pipers and drummers in the annual production of the Tattoo.

Your gift—in any amount—makes a real difference.
