"speaks for itself"


Thaddeus Lake Music Foundation for Economically Disadvantaged Children


A foundation whose primary goal is to remove economic barriers that may prevent children residing in Leduc and area from participating in music. Through recommendations of the Leduc and area music teachers, children may be provided funds as required to attend lessons or nationally accredited competitions or the provision of musical instruments.


A foundation initiated by Thaddeus Lake who was tragically killed by a drunk driver on November 26th, 2011. Donations were accepted at his memorial to honour the local music legacy that Thaddeus had started. Legacy funding is solicited through various fundraising activities and individual donations.


Thaddeus had worked for 2 summers with the Mavericks, a benevolent organization operating out of the barns at the Calgary Stampede. This motivated his servant heart to start his own organization to ensure those who could not afford music le.ssons or instruments could still enjoy and learn music. He was taken from this earth just prior to formally setting it up
