1 year of Youth Volume includes:
YOUTH VOLUME in Detroit + Marquette
Youth Volume relies on individual donors and small grant-providers to support the work of our organization. Our studio’s success with grassroots fundraising is what will prove to the world that a business model centering equity and community support CAN WORK!
Together, we are nurturing beautiful humanity & beautiful talent in young string-players ages 4-18 in Detroit and Marquette, Michigan!
100% of musical changemakers in the Youth Volume classrooms benefit from creative collaboration with people of various backgrounds!
SUSTAINERS are fans who give MONTHLY, QUARTERLY or ANNUALLY.
So far Youth Volume has about 20 Sustainers who give between $5 and $100 each month. Fans can sign up to give quarterly, annually, or monthly.
"Recurring giving" is an innovative method of supporting community arts. It stretches donors' capacities while allowing our small organization to more accurately predict how much $ will roll in each month to subsidize tuition for families who could not access quality music education otherwise.
Pledge your love to young musical changemakers who need you!
