I am a student at Merit School of Music participating in Merit Madness - a two-week practice challenge raising funds for financial aid for Merit students. Help me reach my fundraising goal and support Merit students by making a donation March 7-21!
What is Merit Madness?
March is Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM) which is a national campaign to raise awareness about the importance of music education. We’re celebrating MIOSM with Merit Madness – a two-week practice challenge for all Merit students! Students will secure sponsors to pledge a set monetary amount per minute of practice (e.g. $0.50/minute of practice) or make a one-time donation for the duration of Merit Madness, March 7-21. Every level of support - from 5 cents/minute and up - is welcome.
How can I donate?
All donations made to Merit Madness will support financial aid for Merit students, helping to fortify our mission of equal access to high-quality music education. Click on the blue "Donate" button above to make a donation to my page and help me reach my fundraising goal.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT! Thanks to our generous matching donors, all Merit Madness donations will be matched up to a total of $10,000. That means your donation will go twice as far!
