Support The Early Childhood Music School
with Aaron Cattell
I am asking you to join me in supporting a wonderful program, which is now in a time of great need.
I have had the pleasure of being connected to the Early Childhood Music School (ECMS) since the beginning of last school year. Our son, Charlie, started in the Young Musicians program, and I am now fortunate to serve on their board with a group of dedicated parents, educators, and musicians. ECMS provides enrichment and fosters a love of music to those in the classroom, in addition to a no-cost outreach program which touches the lives of over 600 at-risk preschool children in our area each year.
Like many organizations, the current situation facing ECMS is, at best, a challenging one. Already utilizing limited resources to make an outsized impact before, they are now faced with both reduced and empty classes in the fall, in what were previously full, significantly reducing funding. Though some classes will be held, and others will be offered virtually, the anticipated loss of tuition dollars from the classroom, which supplement the outreach programs, will be significant.
This organization is made up of a passionate group of individuals. Please join me in support of this incredible program so that they can continue to provide this much needed service to our community, through this year and for many years to come.
Note: Your donation will show as being to AthleteBiz, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, and 100% of the funds raised through this page will go to the Early Childhood Music School.
