Get Up and Give! L49 FUNraiser

$7,311 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 86 people in 6 months

We are turning  things up a notch with a fitness-focused "Get Up and Give!" 2018 FUNraiser with rock-hard goals! Each of the L49ers have agreed to train towards a fitness test or race, and your gifts will give us much-needed support as we run and train for new music! Our "Get Up and Give!" FUNraiser starts today and continues until day's end on Tuesday November 27 (Giving Tuesday). Follow us as we suffer and sweat over the next couple of months through the following goals:

Tim – not one but TWO half-marathons! (First one is Sept 30, second one is Nov 11)
Hudson – Triple Lakes Trail 40K (Oct 20)
Max – Houston 10k (Oct 28)
Jani and Chris – HEB Cameron Park Zoo Stampede in Waco (November 10)
Andy – Beef up/Lose weight weigh in/weigh out (Nov 21)

Your pledges and donations will be a huge booster to each of us as we compete for MVB. What is an MVB you ask? To dial it up a notch, we are hosting a contest among us of who can get the most donations and pledges, with the winner being hailed at the finish-line as the Most Valuable Badass(MVB) of the year! Select your team member when you give!

 Most importantly, your tax deductible gifts will fuel specific Latitude 49 projects and commissions and give us the boost we need to continue bringing new music into the world through commissioning, performance, education, and advocacy. Here are some projects we are FUNraising for:

-The production of our sophomore album, Wax and Wire 
-Commissions for this season and next, including works by Christopher Cerrone, Gity Razaz, and Ken Thomson 
-Necessary funds to keep our organization running smoothly and to hire professionals that will allow our impact and output to grow
-Miles for our travels (travel miles and points accepted!)
-Love Wounds collaboration with the Chicago Fringe Opera company in Chicago, May 2018

Of course, we know how much you all love L49-swag and music, so we've designed a PERKathon as follows:

10K LEVEL - Gifts of $26-$50: receive a High-5 and a downloadable track from Wax and Wire

We are in the homestretch now, and we are asking for all of your help to spread the word for our final push! We have been given a $4000 matching donation for Giving Tuesday, which marks the LAST day of our campaign. Facebook/Paypal are offering matching donations as well, so that means that every dollar raised (up to $4000) on Giving Tuesday will be TRIPLE MATCHED! We appreciate your gifts so much, and with $6281 raised so far, we are set to surpass our $15,000 goal with your help. Will you help us by sharing the following link and encouraging your friends and family to Get Up and Give with us?! We are so thankful for all you do to support Latitude 49's mission, and we look forward to crossing the finish line with you all in a few short days!

Please contact us for the link to our facebook fundraiser (with the triple matching perk).

We are rounding the bend of our FUNraiser!! With the online gifts and some serious private donations, we have surpassed the half-way mark of our goal! Please help us to spread the word as we shoot for the top in the next few weeks, culminating with giving Tuesday on November 27. This weekend we are hosting a lightening round, and for each and every donation, folks will get their name on my cast (yes, that's right I broke my ankle during training) and a free downloadable L49 recording in addition to any perks promised!
