About the Turn It Up Foundation
What is the Turn It Up Foundation?
Provides funding to deaf and hard of hearing elementary age children for musical pursuits, such as piano lessons, band instruments, and more.
What is the inspiration behind Turn It Up?
Chuck Dillehay, founder of Skin, Bones, Hearts & Private Parts, shares, “Created in honor of my son Caleb, completely deaf in both ears, but through the miracle of cochlear implants, he leads a full and extremely productive life. Caleb is also musically talented and plays both percussion and keyboard. It is so inspiring to see him on the front row of the marching band. And listening to him play the piano has brought many to tears of joy. Caleb is our superstar and hero, and it’s our wish that others will be inspired by him too.”
How are the awards distributed?
Each year, we review applications for scholarships for music lessons or other musical pursuits. Awards are intended to assist recipients with educational costs, including tuition and fees. Award amounts average around $1,500 for the school year.
