ZebraStringz Youth Ensemble is raising funds to cover the administrative costs to file for a 501c3 for the nonprofit arm - All About the Music Foundation which is dedicated to making learning string instruments accessible and possible and healthy environments.
Instruments have been donated and we want students to be able to have an instrument to practice on. We just need to establish the 501c3 to be able to cover the costs of supplies, books, music stands, and costs of storage space.
Just think about it. If you research the gross household income of Black families compared to the average white household you find the disproportionate effect of income gap along with gentrification creating a natural separation and barriers to access. Why is achievement based on the few who “make “ it? Don’t we need all of our young minds to be onboard?
Music education offers opportunities for self-expression and learning while decreasing the likelihood of disciplinary actions, increases self-esteem, and improves the other academic areas such as reading and mathematics .
Please share and also consider donating. Any amount can and will help. Thank you so much and May it return to you in abundance.
