Thanksgiving kicks off a wonderful season of taking stock of all the good that has happened during the year and helps us put the focus on what we can do for others. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have us looking for the best deal on the season’s coolest ‘stuff’ – then comes Tuesday – Giving Tuesday…
Tuesday, November 29 is Giving Tuesday – a day in which a worldwide community comes together to leverage social communities in a celebration of those causes that are important to us! Give a Note and NAfME (National Association for Music Education) hope you will leverage your communities to support music education. Music education fosters the kind of creative, collaborative community-building that strengthens students and schools. Music education is sound investment (no pun intended)! A recent NAMM study found that it costs on average about $187 per student to provide music education.
Please help us spread the word on Giving Tuesday that music education is a worthy investment. Share our tweets and our Facebook posts and ask your social communities to make a donation to support Give a Note Foundation. Since 2011, Give a Note Foundation has provided more than $1.2 million in grants to schools in 100 communities in the U.S. At the same time, we have conducted five national awareness campaigns that highlight the importance of music education for all students and provided 20 scholarships for teachers
