Donate to RME

Music can change lives, and RME strives to do that every day with our educational programming and live music. Last year we reached over 18,000 students with our educational programming, hosted over 100 concerts with over 10,000 attendees, and provided over a million dollars of economic impact for our region. The RME is dedicated to providing opportunities for our community to LISTEN to, LEARN about, and PLAY music.

RME has proven our role as a music center in the heart of downtown Davenport. We need your help to continue to expand our programming to include:
  • More opportunities for local, regional, and national acts to inspire and entertain our community through music
  • More students inspired by live music through our outreach and educational programming
  • More specialized programming for students with learning disabilities, medical challenges, and challenges to be heard – help them find their voice

We at RME thank you for your generous support in helping us continue to provide quality music education and entertainment for our community.

Karli Rose Kell Music Scholarship Fund at the RME

The Karli Rose Kell Music Scholarship Fund at RME has already received almost $100,000 in pledges and donations from corporate organizations and private individuals.

Each and every dollar you donate goes to directly to benefit area youth who might not otherwise be able to afford music lessons at RME, KIDSTOCK tuition, Sound Lab tuition or fees for the other educational programs offered through the RME.

This fund was established by the late Ellis Kell, the 'Godfather' of RME, and his wife Kristi, in memorial of their late daughter Karli Rose, who died in an auto accident in 2002.
