Our First Grant
Drum roll please…Ear Candy submitted its first grant application and we got it!!! The organization will receive $3,000 from the Social Venture Partners Teen program. The funds will be used to develop the Teen Central Music Program at the Burton Barr Library in Downtown Phoenix. These dollars go a long way and will make a significant impact on hundreds of kids, literally!!! Looks like we need to start submitting some more grant proposals…we’re onto something MASSIVE here!!!
