Help fund blues and jazz workshops in Chicago public schools

April 20, 2015

We’ll be highlighting RoomFunding™ projects here on our blog. Next up is Foundations of Music…

A little bit about Foundations of Music

They are a Chicago-based nonprofit that provides music education in public schools, specifically focusing on schools in the most disadvantaged neighborhoods of the city. One of the ways they do this is through blues workshops…which is perfect considering the blues history of the city.

Why we love this project

The workshops not only educate students but they help build confidence. Here is what a fifth-grader said about one of their programs, “You have inspired me to sing louder, to sing in front of many people. Thank you for teaching me, you made me sing proud.”

If we can get 7,500 room nights for them, then we can fund 20 blues and jazz workshops…impacting the lives of 5,000 children in Chicago. Those room nights will help students find their voice, engage with their community and realize their full potential.

How you can help

For every room night that actualizes, Hotels for Hope donates $2 to Foundations of Music’s RoomFunding project…at no cost to you. But they need your help to reach their goal of 7,500 room nights. How do you do that, you ask? There are two simple ways to do this…

  1. Book room nights from your next business trip or a personal stay. Every room night matters and gets them closer to reaching their goal.
  2. Commit your next meeting or event. If your company hosts meetings or conferences, you could support Foundations of Music in a bigger way. Whether you are organizing a conference, meeting, board retreat, sporting event, festival, or large consumer event…we’ve got your back. Our services and technology will make planning these events much easier.

So what do you say, can you help Foundations of Music out?

Commit your room nights to help fund blues and jazz workshops in Chicago!
