WeMake and All Hands Raised CEO, Dan Ryan.
The power of community was evident earlier this month during WeMake Celebrates, and its impact will be felt long after the party has ended. We officially donated $10,000 to All Hands Raised to fund the First Octave Grant. This grant will directly support art and music education programs in Portland’s public schools.
Rock On! $1000 to PROWUS
Because of your generous donations, we were also able to make an additional donation of $1000 to PROWUS in honor of the amazing kids from School of Rock who performed at our event.
PROWUS – Portland Rock on With Us – is a non-profit organization that provides grants for music students ages 8 to 18 and supports the childrens’ rock and roll performance community. They provide grants and tuition help for students in music programs like School of Rock Portland, The Portland Cello Project, and Rock and Roll Camp for Girls.
Thank you, Portland! Together we’ve given our young people a chance to explore new creative possibilities and be part of this amazing community for years to come.
