Syracuse attorney Joe Stanley, of The Stanley Law Offices, LLP, and Melissa Bassett launch Summer Facebook Fundraiser for Music for the Mission.
Attorney Joe Stanley, founder of Music for the Mission, and Melissa Bassett, its executive director, recently launched a Summer Facebook Fundraiser to help the homeless and hungry. “All funds raised either go to Music for the Mission’s mini-grant program, an annual grant awarded to grassroots organizations who run projects that help the hungry and the homeless, or to partnerships that fit our mission,” said Bassett.
Music for the Mission organizes and sponsors local events to benefit homeless and hungry populations throughout central New York. Fundraised dollars are redirected to nonprofit organizations engaged in critical service provision to those in need of nutritious food and safe shelter.
Those who donate on Facebook will have a chance to win the naming rights for one of Music for the Mission’s 2018 mini-grants. Naming rights donations will be accepted until July 30, 2017, and the winners will be notified on July 31. Music for the Mission will be accepting applications for grants until December 15, 2017, and the award winners will be notified by the end of January 2018.
“Grants are usually at most $1,500 and our fundraising goal for the summer Facebook fundraiser is $2,000,” noted Stanley. “The person who donates the most will gain naming rights to one of our 2018 mini-grants. It will be the Music for the Mission ‘Winner's Last Name’ mini-grant. Please donate before July 31 11:59 p.m. EST.”
To enter the naming rights fundraiser, all donations must be done through Facebook at facebook.com/donate/10156257730194942/10212924908581738/. To donate directly to Music for the Mission, please visit musicforthemission.org/donate/.
