Thank You to Our Teach the Beat Donors

teachthebeat_congasThrough the generous support of individual donors, Teaching for Change will continue to bring go-go into D.C. area classrooms.

From June through September, Teaching for Change brought go-go performers and scholars to provide in-school coaching to D.C. public and public charter students of all ages as part of a special grant from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

In September, we asked for individual contributions to help us continue this exciting program through the fall and beyond—and you responded!

A HUGE shout out to Teaching for Change board member Nzinga Tull, who asked her friends to donate to Teach the Beat to celebrate her birthday—#NzingaNewYear. Her campaign has already raised more than $2,500. Because of her efforts and your generous donations, musicians and scholars will continue to bring D.C.’s rich and unique tradition of go-go into the classroom.

Thank you to our generous donors.
