The Big Give Christmas Challenge
This year, we are taking part in a major new fundraising challenge – THE BIG GIVE CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE!
The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a match funding campaign, which means that if you donate during the campaign week, your donation will be doubled. One donation – twice the money to Music in the Round!
We are raising money for a new project, WeCompose: inspiring young music makers in schools across South Yorkshire. The project aims to inspire disadvantaged young people and unlock their full creative potential, through making and writing music together. Part of our award-winning Learning & Participation programme, WeCompose will enable young people to develop new creative and social skills for life.
Music education is facing a crisis. Due to lack of funding, opportunities are limited for young people to experience high-quality music in schools. Teachers report a lack of confidence in teaching composition, and creativity is suffering as a result. There is evidence that children naturally enjoy composing music, but they frequently cannot achieve their full creative potential. Our solution is to bring professional musicians and composers together with teachers and students – unlocking the creativity in the next generation of music-makers!
We have a pot of match funding ready and waiting for your donation to help us towards our big target of £15,000. Please help us to make this project happen by donating to our Big Give campaign from 30 November – 7 December. You will need to donate online via the Big Give platform HERE bit.ly/MitRBigGive
If you would like to give a major gift to this campaign, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember – your gift to this campaign will be doubled by match funding, so it is worth twice as much to us as a charity!
