Together with Sound United and their CEO, Kevin Duffy, we’ve been working on ways to make an impact for kids, schools and communities tied to the company’s mission of “bringing joy to the world through sound.”

In May 2018, Sound United announced the launch of Sound Start, a foundation dedicated to donating 10,000 instruments to children worldwide by the 2020-21 school year. To support this goal, Sound United is pledging a percentage of Denon, Polk Audio, and Definitive Technology sales to the Sound Start Foundation. See full press release.

We announced the initiative at Finney Elementary, a VH1 Save The Music grant recipient school, in Chula Vista, CA.
