Transcendent Pathways is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purposes of Transcendent Pathways must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

--Short Summary--

Transcendent Pathways was conceived because I knew there were people out there that felt alone and isolated due to health conditions, and I knew that music could help them feel connected again.  I knew music could remind them that there were people out there that cared and hadn’t forgotten them.  I want to set up a system that collects donations, that go to hiring concert musicians to play music for people in places like children’s hospitals, nursing homes, institutions for the mentally ill, any place where people might feel alone and forgotten.  I think that music can alleviate these feelings, and remind people that they are never alone.  

The goal of TP is to champion these qualities through music.  And it all starts with this concert during mental illness awareness week.  On October 7th at SFCM, TP will hold its debut concert and will feature top notch local groups such as Magik Magik Orchestra and Nonsemble 6.  

Help me debut Transcendent Pathways as the new face of Arts and Medicine in the Bay Area by supporting this concert, and by extension supporting the people who desperately need that reminder.  You are not alone.  You have not been forgotten. There are real people who care about you.  ...

You can show that you care by supporting this campaign.  Your donation is tax deductible, and on top of that, every dollar you give will be matched by the Brin/Wojcicki Foundation so no amount is too small.

--The Impact--

Transcendent Pathways will bring a new edge to arts and medicine in the Bay Area.  We want to bring powerful live performances of new music to those who feel marginalized by their affliction.  We believe that by providing this, we can remind individuals that they are never alone.  Music has that power.  And it all starts with this concert.


--Matching Grant!!!--

This radical idea, that music can heal, has received the generous pledge of a matching grant from the Brin/Wojcicki Foundation.  So every dollar raised will be matched!


--How Is The Money Used?--

ALL PROCEEDS go to funding the ensembles, venue, and production costs. Transcendent Pathways does not stand to profit financially from your donations.
