Help Fund the The Alan R. Pearlman Foundation & Support a Trip to NAMM

Published on Nov 18, 2019 Alan R. Pearlman Foundation

It looks like we have another foundation dedicated to one of the greats of synthesizer history. The Alan R. Pearlman Foundation is currently seeking funding for a trip to NAMM on Indiegogo. Above is a video from Alan R. Pearlman's daughter Dina Pearlman.

"About the Alan R. Pearlman Foundation & ARPchives

My name is Dina Pearlman. I'm the daughter of the late Alan R. Pearlman, inventor of ARP Synthesizers - groundbreaking electronic synthesizers that changed the face of music forever.

Why It's Important

Since the death of my father in early January, I have seen overwhelming evidence that there needs to be a thoroughly reexamined history of his work because his story and that of ARP Synthesizers is relevant to the history and understanding of modern music.

Even more importantly, because of the high cost of education and vintage electronic music instruments, we want to offer opportunities for musicians, particularly young and underfunded musicians to have educational and artistic opportunities - something that Alan was passionate about.

This is why the Alan R. Pearlman Foundation was formed - to honor his legacy as an inventor, a musician, an entrepreneur, an engineer and a mentor... to make his innovative inventions publicly accessible, and help inspire future generations to imagine and create through charitable projects.

Getting Started

Before we can start our projects, we need to get the word out about our Foundation and our Mission.

We have been given an opportunity to introduce the Foundation to the music instrument industry at the hugely popular NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) show this January. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us. At NAMM, the foundation board members will promote the Foundation, its mission and its charitable projects to electronic musicians, engineers, potential donors and the press.

How You Can Make a Difference

As the Foundation is in its infancy, we are seeking funding to cover some of our costs of attending the show: that includes tradeshow booth expenses, marketing materials, and travel expenses for three of our board members. We need help from people like you! Music lovers, synth lovers, creators and believers in perpetuating educational and creative opportunities. As the Foundation is still applying for 501(c)(3) status, we cannot guarantee a tax-deductible contribution.* However, we can offer some fabulous incentives!"
