Gift of Music Partner Tools: Communications & Marketing Materials

Gift of Music partner,

Thank you for your willingness to help us promote an incredibly important initiative. We are confident that with the help of our community, we’ll be able to get instruments into the hands of hundreds of children throughout central Ohio. We know that giving these students access to music and music equipment encourages intellectual and emotional development, especially during this time of uncertainty. Thank you for helping us make a life-changing impact for these children.

Below are various assets and scripts depending on the type of communications you’re able to amplify to your various audiences.
