The Giving Project, an online professional fundraising platform that works closely with local companies to generate large amounts of money for deserving charities while providing them with a low-cost and effective marketing tool, announced it will be launching its August campaign to benefit Music is Art.
Each month, the Giving Project will feature a new campaign to benefit a charity. These campaigns will be sponsored by area businesses and individuals who create exclusive prizes and experiences for the purposes of an online sweepstakes on www.givingproject.com. When individuals donate to the charity via the website, they’re rewarded with entries to win the prize.
This month’s prize is two front row seats to the Goo Goo Dolls concert at Shea’s Performing Arts in Buffalo this October, as well as a meet and greet with Robby Takac, an autographed guitar, and a private tour of Takac’s recording studio. The contest kicked off Aug. 1 and concludes after the Music is Art festival on Sept. 8.
“We’re excited to announce this campaign. The prize is fantastic and we’re confident the community will be very receptive,” said Joseph Castle, founder and president of the Giving Project. “Aside from raising funds, we also hope to create exposure for Music is Art within the Western New York area.”
The Giving Project provides businesses with access to community outreach, social media development, brand exposure, employee satisfaction, and a low-cost advertising business model by sponsoring a campaign. If a business does not want to donate a prize, it has the option of becoming a partner in the campaign by matching a donation amount or making a flat donation to the cause.
“We want to have as many people as possible donating as often as possible,” said Castle. “In essence, we want to make giving a habit. We want to encourage everyone to take part in our fundraising campaign series by offering a chance to win great and exciting prizes. As always, we want to thank the Music is Art organization for making this campaign possible.”
