Hello MTAG Members!
My name is Caroline Buckner and I am the President and Founder of Concert for a Cause Inc. We are a 501c3 nonprofit based in Roswell whose mission is to increase awareness for music therapy and its positive benefits for various populations in the therapeutic world. We also fundraise to financially support special projects that utilize music therapy at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta by sponsoring and hosting major benefit concerts and other music-centered fundraising events.
I'm a senior music therapy major at Georgia College & State University as well as a member of MTAG. I'm reaching out to try to get our organization more involved with the music therapy practices in the metro Atlanta area. At the end of our current year (June) we will be updating our support services to include more organizations than just Children's and would like MTAG's help with getting our information out to other practices.
How can you help? We want our services to actually be of use to music therapy practices. Our executive board is looking to offer grants, client scholarships, and donated items as our budget allows. We do already have an Amazon wishlist set up for our donors to purchase supplies that will be sent to us for our music therapy partners to choose from. If there are specific items that your practice needs- let us know! We want to be a resource for your organization, but for us to best do that we need to know what you need, whether that be funding or specific items. Please reach out to introduce yourselves and let us know how we can help!
Concert for a Cause Inc is also looking for passionate members who want to help us further our mission! We are always in need of volunteers for our events, performers for our fundraising events throughout the year (yes, this could also be your clients!!) and possible executive board members whose views and passions align with our mission. If any of that interests you, please reach out as well!
I have included our social media and contact information below so you can stay up to date on our events and sponsorships. We would love to invite each of you to our annual community charity concert on Saturday, June 8th at 7pm at The Cherokee Arts Center in Canton, GA.
