WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Rockin' the Cause is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization. Our main purpose is to raise funds through organized, volunteer only, concert events for kids who cannot afford band instruments and music lessons. We work through the Chime, (Children Having Instruments for Music Education) program and other organizations in our local neighborhood to distribute the funds where they are needed most. We believe that enabling kids to participate in a creative, extra-curricular activity keeps them off the streets and helps them to develop and fulfill their dreams.
This is our 7th year of supporting our community! This year we are once again partnering with the Valley View School District CHIME Program to bring band instruments and lessons to kids who cannot afford them.
We are excited to share how in 2019 Rockin’ the Cause has helped Valley View students:
Supported 35 students through the CHIME program
All necessary supplies (reeds, oil, instrument cleaning supplies, etc.) and repairs covered
35 students were able to participate in the school band program
Extracurricular activities like music, instill great values like teamwork, responsibility, and a sense of community.
Children involved in extracurricular activities have better school attendance, academic success, and aspirations for continuing education post high school.
Children involved in extracurricular activities make healthier choices like avoiding drug use.
Together we can make a difference and provide children with an opportunity to fulfill their dream of playing an instrument.
