GIVINGTUESDAY’S GLOBAL NETWORK COLLABORATES YEAR-ROUND TO INSPIRE GENEROSITY AROUNDTHE WORLD, WITH A COMMON MISSION TO BUILD A WORLD WHERE GENEROSITY IS PART OF EVERYDAY LIFE.
FEW KNOW THAT NONPROFITS EMPLOY MORE THAN 12 MILLION PEOPLE, WITH PAYROLLS EXCEEDING THOSE OF MOST OTHER U.S. INDUSTRIES, INCLUDING CONSTRUCTION, TRANSPORTATION, AND FINANCE.
Nonprofits are advocates: for clean air and water, for quality education, for taking care of our elders to name a few and, for enriching lives through the arts.
We would like to ask for your support this GivingTuesday as we look for ways to ensure that our organization not only survives, but thrives beyond these difficult and challenging times. As you may know, we are no longer in partnership with Queens University. Due to the renovation of their Fine Arts Center, we were tasked with finding a new home for rehearsals and equipment storage. Losing the financial support of the university has increased our operational cost tremendously.
With your support, we can continue providing quality music to the Charlotte region as we have done for over 55 years while giving our musicians the opportunity to keep music in their lives. Music has many great benefits to our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing, something that’s especially vital during this time. By playing and providing music, the Charlotte Concert Band is benefiting our community in a variety of ways.
With that, we hope that you can contribute what you can to our cause. There’s no such amount as too little! We appreciate everyone’s support.
