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 to participate in their school's performing arts programs. We have worked 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.

In our 7th year supporting our community, Rockin' the Cause has chosen to partner with the Valley view Educational Enrichment Foundation.  This partnership will enable Rockin' the Cause to provide financial support for students across the spectrum of performing arts including choir, theater, band and orchestra.

We are excited to share how Rockin' the Cause has helped and will help Valley View students in 2021/22:

  • Provided instrument, music books and instrument accessories for 10 new beginner band students

  • Spent approximately $1,000.00 repairing instruments for families that could not afford to repair refurbished instruments for assignment to students by fall SY 22-23

  • Enabled 30 band student between 6-12th grade, who could not otherwise, join the band program for 2022

  • Remaining funds will go towards private music lessons for these students during the school year

We Need Your Help - Why donate?

  • 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.  We can provide kids with an opportunity to fulfill their dream of being a part of an artistic community that they would otherwise not be able to afford.

Thank you in advance for your contribution!!
