Funds raised through this campaign will directly support ETM teaching corps growth and development to enable ETM to deliver on our promise to ensure as many NYC children have music in the classroom.
In total, ETM is looking to raise $90,000 to meet the needs of our partner schools and the city of New York.
Education Through Music is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and donations are 100% tax deductible.
The nationwide teacher shortage is impacting ETM's ability to recruit high-quality music teachers and meet the needs of our students and school partners in 2021-22. ETM is running a special campaign to raise $90,000 above and beyond our anticipated budget, to recruit additional music teachers and ensure we can fulfill our mission in full this school year.
Thanks to the generous support from members of the ETM Board, all donations made through December 1, will be matched dollar for dollar! Please consider doubling the impact of your donation with a gift today.
The pandemic has impacted the teaching profession in a number of ways; from hesitancy to move to New York City, to increased cost of living expenses. While at the same time, the demand for music in the schools has actually RISEN. ETM partner schools have requested a 50% increase in the number of music classes taught at their school from last year to this.
