…but going the distance
With the onslaught of coronavirus, the districts and centers in which The Village Music School operate are closing their doors. Where they are opting for distance learning, we will set up online learning classrooms as well. We will contact the parents of the link information as soon as we have it set up. Parents should look for an email from thevms.org later this week.
We are happy to announce that our sister organization, The Village Music School Foundation, has survived the first hurdle toward getting its much-needed 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. The Foundation was notified recently that by early May they will find out if they have approval or if they need to provide more information to the IRS.
The Foundation will, once they get not-for-profit designation and can accept tax-deductible donations, be able to fund music lessons for families who cannot afford them by paying half the cost for the lessons. In the meantime, they are planning fund-raising events, including one in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association.
Now coming to summer camps near you! More info to come!
