Rosie’s House: A Music Academy for Children will use a $10,000 TechFoundation grant to create a music technology lab including music theory software, a smart board and lap top stations for students to compose music.
“The technology lab will enhance the music education curriculum and provide a creative opportunity for composition and song writing,” said Becky Bell, Executive and Artistic Director of Rosie’s House. “We will be able to provide our students with new ways of learning and opportunities to express their creative potential. The additional funds will also update our data infrastructure and dramatically impact our efficiency and fundraising ability.”
David Altshuler, Executive Director of TechFoundation, added that Rosie’s House “is one of the few nonprofits ready to make the most of targeted technology investments. TechFoundation is proud to support the community work done by Rosie’s House as it brings music to kids in Phoenix.”
Rosie’s House is one of the largest free afterschool music programs in the United States, and relies on community support to provide the life-changing gift of music to students that would not be able to afford this opportunity. The technology grant will also be used to update existing database systems and graphic design software. TechFoundation is a non-profit organization that delivers technology and capital to help nonprofit organizations serve humanity.
