About Sun God for a Cause and FM 94/9's About the Music Fund
In order to raise money for the "About the Music" Foundation, the Associated Students is proud to announce the creation of Sun God For a Cause to occur in conjunction with the 2014 Sun God Festival.
It is our mission to increase student philanthropy and service on campus while opening up the opportunity for growth for our largest campus tradition. Our goal is to raise funds for these grants, all of which will be contributed towards saving music education in primary schools around the nation.
WHY "ABOUT THE MUSIC"?
Music education continues to be underfunded within our public school system. In order to support schools whose music programs have been eliminated or are in jeopardy, About the Music presents grants specifically for music programs in public schools.
In previous years, the grant has distributed over $25,000 in funds to increase music education in local San Diego schools. With a historical connection of over 42 school districts in San Diego, the About the Music grant has the power to help over 500,000 students and 26,000 teachers by raising money to fund music education.
These grants serve a variety of purposes, from funding music technology in the classroom to field trips for students.
