The Giving Project announced it will launch an August campaign to benefit Music is Art.
The online professional fundraising platform works closely with local companies to generate money for deserving charities while providing them with a low-cost and effective marketing tool.
Each month, the Giving Project will feature a new campaign to benefit a charity. These campaigns – at www.givingproject.com – will be sponsored by area businesses and individuals who create exclusive prizes and experiences for the purposes of an online sweepstakes. 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 kicks off Aug. 1 and concludes after the Music is Art Festival on Sept. 8.
