Project Report | May 12, 2021
Q1 2021 Highlights from Herizon Music Foundation

By Thea Wood | President

Hello, and welcome to Herizon Music Foundation's quarterly report!

Herizon Music is off to a strong start in 2020!  While almost 1/3 of nonprofits aren't expected to recover from the pandemic, our community came together to defy the odds. And it's all because of YOU!

We're keeping this correspondence to just the highlights. Let us know if you'd like a copy of the 2020 Annual Report coming out next week. If you haven't already, please sign up for the Spotlight Newsletter, which features news, event announcements, inspiring messages, and more.

Meanwhile, here's what we've been up to...

TEAM

Amanda Meyer, COO of BountyJobs.com, joined Herizon Music's board of directors. As Treasurer, Amanda brings a wealth of experience in finance and operations management. She's the booster shot we were looking for in a new board member as we strive to be a national force for women in music.

Networking Director Grace Lanni became an executive producer for the upcoming Amazon Prime show "The Social Movement." It's a collaborative reality show whose participants are charged with solving the world's most pressing issues-- in four days. Here's the trailer for the series releasing Labor Day 2021. Congrats to Grace!

Do you have the passion and drive to be on our board of directors? Email thea@herizonmusic.org.

 

PODCAST

The "Backstage Chats with Women in Music" podcast launched three new episodes:

Lauren LoGrasso: The Future, Fear & Age of Creativity

Nashville's Ava Paige: When Hope Come In (#cancersucks) 

Maggie Szabo: The Pride of New Pop Music Culture

 

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S WEEK

In honor of women's continued efforts to spread awareness of issues that affect them in the music industry, Herizon Music produced the video "Women In Music Have Something To Say." It features women from Italy, Canada, Belgium, Canada, and the U.S. and came together with the help of our ally Texchromosome's Penny Jo Pullus.  All of these women are forces of nature and we salute them in making their voices heard!

 

FUNDRAISING

We raised $11,290 in the first quarter! It's a great start and we know we can do better in Q2 as we reach more donors and partner with businesses that integrate corporate social responsbility strategies into their corporate objectives. Ways you can help us expand our fundraising efforts:

1. Start your own birthday fundraiser!  In the "description" field, share what this cause means to you personally and then invite your friends and family to participate.

2. Ask your business to get involved! Email introductions and project ideas to thea@herizonmusic.org.

3. Sign up for a budget-friendly recurring giving program for as low as $10/month. Click here and choose the "donate monthly" tab. 

4. Volunteer!  Your talents and experience are greatly valued. 

Thank you for joining our band of dreamers, rule breakers, and rock stars :-) 

 

Rock on!
