Help Memphis Non-Profit Keep the Music Alive

How's it going, Thanks a Bunch for stopping by. It means the world to me that you are taking your time out to read this and even better that you click on the GoFundMe. I'm Corey, and I am the Director and the Founder of Memphis Youth Arts Initiative. The whole story about my organization and what we do is on our website or click the video link below as well.

Let's get down to the reason for having this GoFundMe set up. As of today, (10/15/2022), I as the leader of my organization am faced with serval financial issues that will severely hinder and possibly disrupt the daily operation and support of our mission and goal of changing the lives of the young people we serve within the next week.

The following things are what we are facing financially and we don't have any source to make this happen due to our organization having 0% funding and no consistent stream of donations and contributions:

Facility/Building Rent (includes utilities, $1695mo)- $10,170 balance
Organization Transportation Lease (15passenger Van, $1750mo)- October Due 10/15
Monetary Assistance for Expenses & Bills (Wifi, Security, Insurance, Etc.)- $4,500

With this GoFundMe Campaign, we hope to raise around $10,000 so that we can do 3 things:

1. Make a significant payment to our landlord who is graciously working with us and is only requiring a partial payment at this time.

2. Complete October's Lease Payment for our van and give it back to the dealer after October until we can afford a monthly payment in the future.

3. Pay our Internet Bill to cut it back on so that our security Cameras can work which keeps our center safe. We can also make a few payments on our Insurance to have it paid up for a few months.

Completing these tasks will help us continue to provide our program to so many people in the Memphis Community for at least another few months until we can secure the right source of funding. We work hard every day looking for ways to fund and provide sustainable funding for our organization. If you have any questions or want to help, visit our website at

Thank You for taking the time to read my plea and God Bless You!
