RCSOME Launches "The Donnie Marginson Music Foundation" Student Music Scholarship Fund
The RCSOME’s scholarship name has changed, but our mission is still the same! The Donnie Marginson Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation created to help foster artistic and musical self-expression for students by awarding scholarships for music lessons and instrument expenses for kids and young adults.
The Donnie Marginson Music Foundation was established by Rob and Sara Coyne to honor her late father, who passed away in the fall of 2007. Donnie’s passion for music was known by anyone who had ever watched him play the drums over the many years of his musical journey. The family wanted to create a scholarship to keep his memory and love of music alive by encouraging kids to pursue their passion for music. Please give our new page a ‘like’ and share to help us on our latest adventure.
We have endless gratitude to Neverland Children’s Theatre for allowing our scholarship fund to thrive under their non-profit foundation over the last five years. BIG THANK YOU to our RCSOME families and community for always supporting and helping us to pay it forward! We are here because of YOU!

RCSOME WINTER RECITAL 2022 is in the books! Huge THANK YOU to everyone involved in making this our BIGGEST recital to date. Between both evenings our 60 performers dazzled over 340 in attendance with their talent and courage. We were able to give away SIX monthly tuitions as well as an electric drum kit to our scholarship winners from our newly established nonprofit, Donnie Marginson Music Foundation.
There is nothing quite like our community who helped us raise over $400 to put back into our scholarship fund and donated 285 pounds of food for St. Mary of the Bay food pantry. We have infinite amounts of gratitude for every dollar and canned goods donated to these causes. We are here because of the overwhelming support we receive from our teachers, students, and families so THANK YOU again for making this such a rocking weekend!
