Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Rockin' For The Arts seeks to expand our RFTA Concert Fund Raising program nation wide and establish an RFTA Scholarship Fund to help underprivileged youth pay for music lessons.

Current Rockin' For The Arts strategies include Branding, Web Site development, Social Media marketing, Cooperate Partnerships and Fund Raising.

The current capabilities of the Rockin' For The Arts organization include our 3 member Board of Directors (a lawyer, a web developer and a business owner), a wonderful volunteer organizer who works with the schools and staff, 4-6 RFTA band coaches / music teachers and 5-6 schools per year that host Rockin' For The Arts fund raising concerts.

Rockin' For The Arts started in Burbank California, in the last 3 years we have expanded to include Glendale, Sherman Oaks and Van Nuys. We have increased our reach and continue to expand our RFTA Fund Raising Program. We continue to track the effectiveness of our program as we return to each school to repeat the program, we are always seeking input from students, teachers and parents to constantly improve our program. Through our Fund Raising efforts we hope to increase the production values of each concert.

Data
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
