Local Music Boosters: The Good Fund Wants to Give You $2,500

We know South Florida is full of ideas for bringing music to the community. Just see the recent PureHoney show at Propagandam which benefited Inspirit, a Lake Worth-based nonprofit that does just that. But if you have a particular plan in mind without an officially established organization to back you, no fear -- Good wants to give you $2,500 to realize your dream.

Good, originally a magazine meant to celebrate young, contemporary forms of philanthropy and charity work, has expanded its mission to fund some of this itself. The latest Good Fund challenge now wants to see how you would "improve your community through the musical arts."

This could be anything from a benefit concert to music lessons and beyond, and you have till March 15 at noon (Pacific Time) to submit a proposal at the Music Maker challenge site here. Then, from March 15 to March 29, a public vote will determine the winner -- so, obviously, a social-media presence will help here.

Here are some tips for your proposal:

    • Include a photo or video that represents your idea. For example: a logo, a photo related to your idea, or an inspirational video.
    • Photos should be in JPG, PNG, or GIF format, at least 572 by 346 pixels, and no larger than 10MB.
    • Write at least three to five sentences that explain how the $2,500 award would enable you to implement your idea.
    • Email us at [email protected] with any questions.

Check out the complete rules and regulations, as well as the competition so far, at the Good Fund Challenge Make Music site.
