Giving Levels


$500 UKC RockStar

A UKC RockStar is a supporter who chooses to sponsor a hospital by funding all or most of the ukuleles that we donate to that facility. The overall goal of this program is to never have a deficit of ukuleles in any UKC hospital, ever again.

 

The initial donation is $500.00 which puts 10 ukuleles in the hospital’s inventory. Each hospital has different requirements, with some needing more than these initial 10 ukuleles and some less. If a RockStar is unable to completely fund their hospital’s needs, then the UKC will step in and furnish the instruments as they become available through our general donations.
