Help Us to Help Support Music Education!
Music Aid Northwest has developed a self-perpetuating fundraising proposal to help SUPPORT SCHOOL MUSIC PROGRAMS THROUGH SALES OF A DISTINCT NEW LICENSE PLATE, available through the Washington State Department of licensing. These special license plates will be available to purchase by every car owner in Washington State.
The mission of Music Aid Northwest is to provide funds for people in need by bringing business and community organizations together with the talent and resources of the Northwest music industry. Through our charitable efforts, we have sought to enhance and promote music awareness and performance throughout the region. Through the license plate initiative, we hope to invest in our most precious resource for our future, our children and their musical education.
We are very excited to be driving this great project to support music in our schools. To make this happen, we need to raise $35,000 in start up costs and acquire 3500 signatures from registered Washington State drivers who would like to show their interest in purchasing a Music Plate when they become available. And we need your help!
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
Sign up your friends, family, school, band mates! Download the sign up sheets here. Print them out and sign 'em up and please make sure they get back to us! Simply mail the sheets back to
Music Aid Northwest
5806 119th Street, Suite 226,
Bellevue, WA 99006.
Use as many copies as you like. The sheets do not need to be full but we need 3500 signatures so feel free to pass these around and make sure they get back to us!
We need to raise the start up fees to give to the Department of Licensing to pay for the start up costs of these specialty plates. All donations are tax deductible. Please send your checks to Music Aid Northwest at the address above.
CORPORATE AND SMALL BUSINESS SUPPORT
We are reaching out to the community for corporate and small business support. Weare looking for sponsors to match the funds we raise through this endeavor. Our hope is that
the $100K to $200K dollars we raise in license plate sales will double or even quadruple through the generous support and fund matching of local Washington State business and other organizations.
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
When the plates become available, buy one and slap it on your car (You may need to use screws) buy one for your kids car, your babysitter or your favorite teacher!
