Who

Commnunity Vision Fellowship is a small- but growing- church located in Duross Heights, New Castle, Delaware. We are part of the Church of God of Prophecy. We are also home to a very active youth group, and a rapidly expanding music program. Our youth group caters to underprivleged kids, and the music program is open to anyone. We offer lessons in guitar, bass, drums, and music theory; we're also building a new church band with the goal of playing out at youth rallies and benefit concerts. Our goal is to offer a comprehensive music education program; classes will be offered free of charge and anyone who wants to perform will get their chance.

What

We have a clear goal of what we need and how the funds will be spent:

- One thousand dollars will be put towards a new guitar rig. This includes a new amplifier and speaker cabinet, effect pedals, and audio cables.

-Another thousand dollars will be put towards a new bass rig. This includes a new amplifier and speaker cabinet, effect pedals, and audio cables.

-The last thousand will be used for instrument upkeep, upgrades, and repairs. At the time this is is being written, the church owns two electric guitars, two basses, two acoustics, and a drum kit all in need of various parts. Some of this funding will be used to buy new hardware, electronics, and drums. The rest of it will go towards picks, strings, spare audio cables, power supplies, and drumsticks; tools we're always in need of. Indiegogo's 4% will come out of this part of the budget.

-If we surpass our goal, the extra funds will go towards further upgrading our sound system. This includes mics, mixing boards, audio cables, and the like. If we surpass the goal by enough, we could even purchase more instruments. This is all icing on the cake though, the main focus is giving the kids more to work with.

-In the event that we do not reach our goal, the funds will be used to repair and upgrade what we have. How much we can do depends on how much we bring in.

We are more than capable of repairing and upgrading used gear, so every effort will be made to spend the money wisely. 

 

Why

Music is proven to improve the lives of kids. Music teaches focus, teamwork, creativity, confidence, and improves both math and language skills. The music programs in public schools all over are being cut, and it's up to local communities to pick up the slack. With your help, we could give underprivleged kids the chance to play in a band that goes well beyond their church. Everyone knows how hard growing up can be, and everyone knows the power and magic of music. Let's use the latter to make the former a little easier.
