Become a Benefactor

Throughout history the arts have always relied on the generosity of a community as well as benefactors. Composers, artists, musicians, and similar people we look up to over the generations were able to do what they did especially because someone was able to support them financially. You can carry on this tradition by becoming a Benefactor of Sound Studios Olympia today. Any amount helps. Please become a sustaining benefactor by committing to monthly donations. 

Thank You!

Sound Studios Olympia is a nonprofit organization and because of this, we rely on the generous donations from our community, local and beyond. Your donations paved the way for our launch and now they will help keep us going. COVID-19 has, unfortunately, cause microbusinesses like private music instruction to stumble and close. We need to be here after COVID ends to provide a place for teachers to regain their footing. With a small donation from a lot of people, we will be here for them to land. Thank You.

Your donations here will help us:

-Cover costs associated with moving in and maintaining our building

-Keep pianos in working condition and tuned

-Pay for necessities like high speed internet, which is a must during COVID as many teachers will need to be able to have virtual lessons at the same time

-Pay a supporting staff

-Continue to acquire necessary equipment to run our studios like desks, toner cartridges, and paper

When we are able to confidently cover most of these costs through continued support from our community we will be able to turn to the other aspects of our vision, like raising money to help pay for lessons for students who might not otherwise be able to afford them. This fund will be created and people will be able to donate specifically to it, which will earmark that contribution. Once a threshold is met we will begin taking applications from our community and get them paired with the best teacher for them. 

Please consider becoming a Monthly Supporting Benefactor as this level of contribution is going to be our most consistent and reliable. You will be helping us establish what will be a long tradition in Olympia, giving everyone the chance to share their music. 

You can set up a monthly contribution of any amount using the donation form below, or just make a donation monthly however you'd like, and you will be added to our Monthly Supporting Benefactor. These donors will receive various SSO Thank-you's throughout the year.
