To be able to be able to consistently deliver our mission, we rely on a wide variety of funding sources including grants, private donations, fundraisers, and more. We know that not everyone is financially capable of supporting our work, but there are a few quick and easy things that you can do to support Dub Academy that don’t require making a donation (however, we are more than happy to receive financial contributions , just head over to our Donate page). Please take the time today to help us to continue to do our work and develop an even bigger presence in the community. For more information or to donate or volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are just a few ways that you can help:
1. Vote for us in the #DeliverMoreMission photo contest:
It’s as simple as logging into Facebook, Liking their page, then scrolling down and clicking Vote on the Dub Academy photo. If we make it to first place we can win $5000! And please be sure to share on social media.
2. Vote for us in the SXSW Panel Picker:
We’ve submitted panel ideas for the SXSW Edu, SXSW Music, and SXSW Interactive festivals this year, and public votes count for 30% of the total selection score. Participating in the 2015 festivals would be a huge opportunity to introduce Dub Academy to the world, thus increasing our community impact. Sure, you have to create a login on the SXSW site, but then you get all of the up-to-date SX news in your inbox. Or just unsubscribe, we don’t really care either way.
3. Designate us as beneficiaries when you shop on Amazon:
OK, so maybe this one does require you to spend some money, but if you’re already buying yourself a new book, some music, or a year’s supply of toilet paper with that Prime account, a percentage of what you spend should get kicked back somewhere, right? To designate Dub Academy, shop through the Smile.Amazon.com link, then choose Dub Academy as your beneficiary.
4. Donate goods:
There are always a few things that Dub Academy needs to help keep things running; not having to spend money on them means that we can put more money into our programs. We always have a need for things like office supplies (printer ink, printer paper, dry erase boards, batteries, etc), bottled water and snacks, and gently used DJ and production gear and Mac products that we can use when we take our show on the road to let kiddos try things out.
Very often your time is just as valuable as your money, and Dub Academy has plenty of ways that you can share your time to help the music community. We are currently looking for volunteers for street teamers, event tablers, fundraising professionals, PR professionals/bloggers, and administrative help. Shoot us an email at email@example.com for a full job description.

Be sure to link up with us on Facebook (we have a Social account, a Business page, a Studio page, and a Community group), Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Spotify, and Soundcloud.
