Sponsorship Opportunities
Save the Music faces two related challenges. First, we are constantly searching for more records and need help locating them and bringing them back. Secondly, the digitalization process is quite time-intensive and costly. We have recently taken steps to lower our costs, but we still need additional funding to continue digitizing and to upgrade our website. With this in mind, we have embarked on a $1,000,000 fundraising campaign that will allow us to continue saving the music.
