On November 18th, the Lancaster County Community Foundation is sponsoring a one-day, online giving event in which MFE will be one of the beneficiaries. On that day, be sure to visit Extragive.org, and choose MFE and donate. Every donation is eligible to win MFE extra prize money from a $300,000 pool that LCCF has committed to the event! This means that your donation could very quickly go from $100 to $1100, with an extra $1000 coming from the prize pool! You can also donate to the same organization several times that day, so give early and give often.
How Does the Extra Give Benefit Music For Everyone?
Despite overwhelming evidence of their value, funding for music programs is being slashed. Music For Everyone is working hard to do something to help. The funds that we receive through Extra Give donations are applied to the following programs: “MFE in the Schools” program, where our music mentors work with over 300 students per week in the School Districts of Lancaster and Columbia, Our Annual Grant Program. Since 2006 MFE has invested over $660,000, providing 3,343 instruments to ALL 16 School Districts in Lancaster County. Additionally, programs include Keys for the City, Music Fridays, The MFE Community Chorus, and Ukulele Uprising.
This is where YOU come in. As you are considering organizations which to donate, please consider Music For Everyone. Every dollar helps us to strengthen the role of music in Lancaster and brings music within reach for everyone in our community.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Whats going on the day of the Extra Give?
This year MFE will also be teaming up with several non-profits for a “giving” event at Tellus360. This arts and music space in the heart of Lancaster has been generous enough to host “The Great Giving Gig” for the fourth year in a row. If you were there last year you know that this is an event you don’t want to miss as it is the fonkiest, hottest party of the year. There will be live music, refreshments, live art, stage performers, a chance to earn a free pint, and an all out fun, “giving” atmosphere. The event will run from 10am until 1:30am, so be sure to join us to help make this year’s EXTRAORDINARY GIVE even bigger and better than last year’s!
MFE is also teaming up with Benchmark Construction to promote giving on the 18th with a party at the Ware Center. This Extraordinary event will take place from 5-8pm. There will be food, beverages, AND a live performance from the MFE String Ensemble. For any questions about the event email MFE.
We can’t wait to see you out at these events. We thank you in advance for your support of Music For Everyone!
