Hobby Builder with a Purpose - We Design & Build Custom Theme Guitars for Charity Fundraising

Doner Designs is a part-time father-son charitable enterprise that builds themed guitars to benefit major national charities. On average we complete approximately one guitar per year. Past projects have raised thousands of dollars for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and The United Services Organizations (USO). 

A few highlights are shown below, but please refer to the Site Index at left - separate pages exist for each project.

Follow us on Facebook to see what we have been up to lately: http://www.facebook.com/donerdesigns .
