Every year students struggle to raise the funds necessary to come to the Festival. It's a big commitment, but one that is well worth the effort. But there's good news! Annie Moses Foundation has partnered with an organization named FundEasy to help you raise funds for your FASA experience.
Here's the great part: Any funds you raise on your personal fundraising page will be automatically sent to the Annie Moses Foundation and will be credited to your tuition. Any amount raised above your owed amount will go toward helping another young student join you on the stage this summer. It's a wonderful way to pay it forward. If you're interested in tips on Fundraising, check out the button below.
Now we know: some of you may feel reluctant to ask family and friends to help out. Many of us are not used to asking for help.
But let us assure you: year after year we have seen students raise more than enough to come to the Festival. The people in your life love you and want to help you!
It's simple: the Annie Moses Music Festival is a transformational event that helps young artists like you realize their musical aspirations. Your talents are worth someone's investment. Here are some fundraising strategies to help you get started:
1. REACH OUT TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Who knows you better than your family and friends? Who better to support you than those who are closest to you? Put up a video of yourself on Youtube asking your friends and family for financial assistance.
2. ASK YOUR CHURCH TO SPONSOR YOU
Play for your church and show them how passionate you are about being a musician. Let Sunday school groups and patrons know about your endeavors to raise money to attend the Festival. These groups often have events and need musical accompaniment.
3. START A FUNDRAISING PAGE ON FUNDEASY
Since funds raised through Fundeasy go directly to your tuition, it's an easy way to raise funds!
4. GET THE WORD OUT VIA SOCIAL MEDIA
Let people know you're there and put musical repertoires together for wedding planners, funeral homes or other similar establishments. People want to hear local music!
5. DO RESEARCH
Talk with schools in your area, symphonies, and other musical establishments. Sometime these institutions have scholarship funds or are willing to sponsor you for a summer.
6. PUT OUT A DONATION JAR AND PLAY
Set up and perform on a street corner, at fairs, or community events, any place with high foot traffic.
7. HOST BAKE SALES OR A SIMILAR EVENT
Bake sales are an easy way to raise money - plus they're yummy!
8. OFFER CAR WASHES OR OTHER SERVICES
Team up with family and friends to host services.
