Our Beneficiaries Need Your Help
May 2020

Our beneficiaries are making a difference in children’s lives every day and they are relying on our support.

While the Songwriters in the Round event is a great way to spend your evening, we are also doing something really important. Most not-for-profits operate on a shoestring budget and in the current environment their more traditional avenues for fundraising are not available. They need our help! Every dollar counts! So far we’ve received five donations of $1,000! Any contribution over $250 will receive a Foundation festival backpack filled with tokens from our wonderful beneficiaries.  

You’re welcome to give during the event, or donate in advance.

Be sure to tune in on Thursday, May 21st at 7pm!
