Collateral Loan and Secondhand Dealers Foundation

The Collateral Loan and Secondhand Dealers Foundation (CLSD Foundation) announced that it has completed its first donation of musical instruments to Lincoln High School in San Jose, Calif. CLSD Foundation is a recent development by the Collateral Loan and Secondhand Dealers Association to begin a statewide outreach program to its membership in an effort to collect and then furnish needy California schools grades K-12 with quality musical instruments.

Recently, CLSDA members donated a variety of musical instruments to the CLSD Foundation. As a direct result of their generosity, the foundation completed its first distribution of instruments to the students of Lincoln High School in San Jose, Calif.

This was the first step toward the ultimate goal of a statewide program to collect and then furnish deserving California schools, grades K-12, with quality musical instruments.

According to CLSDA Board President Robert Verhoeff, Lincoln High School was an ideal candidate for the program. "The school recently had most of its band instruments stolen and had no funds to replace them," he said. "It was fortunate that through our foundation we were able to rally the California pawn community to provide more than 24 instruments to the school."

Lincoln High School music teacher Kate Meyer said in all of her years of teaching this is the most extraordinary thing she has ever seen. "We are very grateful to the CLSD Foundation for its efforts."

"While pawnbrokers have always been actively involved in their communities through business and social organizations, we felt we could utilize our industry's knowledge and love for music to provide badly needed support for various musical programs," Verhoeff said. "We see this as just the beginning of how our industry and its members can give back to our communities through this foundation."


For more than 50 years, the Collateral Loan and Secondhand Dealers Association has been leading the California pawn industry through programs, education, information and legislative advocacy.
