Here at Concerts for Causes Inc, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2000, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress. Scroll down to learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.
SAVE THE MUSIC
Since it’s beginning, Concerts for Causes has given hundreds of musical instruments to deserving students. Our “Save the Music” program purchases brand new musical instruments for students. With the dropout rate of high school students in the DMV for certain demographics approaching 67%, studies show 95% of high school students who are involved in a music program graduate and go on to college — a staggering statistic! Many of our high schools have wonderful music programs with dedicated teachers, but inferior or no musical instruments. Concerts for Causes has given thousands and thousands of dollars worth of instruments to the most deserving students in under-served communities across the nation.
FEED THE HUNGRY
Rebecca Stamps is the volunteer food and clothing ‘rain maker’ for Project Blessing. She lives in Lincoln Heights and operates Project Blessing out of an empty apartment that was provided by the DC government. Ms. Stamps is assisted by many volunteers within the community. Clothing for residents of Lincoln Heights is particularly appreciated, especially for the mothers-to-be and very young children. Food and vegetable donations are really appreciated any time of the year. If you can help a neighbor with clothing, food or a donation, “Thank you. ”If you are able to donate non-perishable food and/or new or gently used clothing items or a monetary donation, contact us at (301) 332-8318 and we will arrange to pick up your donation. Monetary donations can be made online by clicking the donate button.
