Ear Candy Fundraiser Through IndieGoGo

Ear Candy is a Tempe-based non-profit charity with the mission of providing youth access to music instruments and education. Through Online Instrument Drives, Play it Forward and Backstage Class, Ear Candy aims to achieve its goal to equip, empower and enlighten youth.

Recently, the charity began a campaign to raise $25,000 in 30 days on IndieGoGo, a online fundraising platform. The money will be used to expand the online instrument drives beyond the Phoenix area, by developing a program that can take an instrument donated from anywhere in the country and place it in an Arizona classroom.

How it Works:

1. Music teachers create an instrument request, post a photo of their students and describe their need for the instruments.

2. Instrument donors choose the music program where they want to donate their instrument, print a free shipping label and send their instrument on its way.

3. Instruments arrive at Ear Candy’s facility for cleaning, tuning and repair.

4. Financial donors chip in to cover shipping and repair (like a micro Indiegogo campaign for each instrument).

5. When the funds are raised, instruments arrive at the music program and are immediately placed in the hands of a child!

The fundraiser currently has $2,855 raised with 17 donation days remaining. If you’d like to donate, please click here. All donations are tax deductible.
