Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Bring Music Production, Recording, Distribution, Media and Industry Access to those less fortunate that should be heard in Music. Also, allow for other charities to have a place to get access to the production, event services and musicians for their own fundraisers at low or no cost to them to lower their own operational costs and increase the dollars that go to where they are needed most.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

General Fund

Every day, all year long, Rotation Records aims to help those that do not have access to music creation capabilities. The Rotation Gives General Fund is used to help underprivileged kids and musicians with access to Rotation Record's studios, gear, producers, live music capabilities and distribution to help the world hear these amazing artists that would have never gotten the chance otherwise. We will also use the general fund to help other non-profits and causes get access to top-level bands and artists for their events as well as lighting sound and stage services so those non-profits do not have to spend their donations on these items and more funding goes to their causes.

Charting impact

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

Bring Music Services to people that cant afford or get access to them
Bring Music Services to other charities at low or no cost (lowering the cost for non-profits to run their own events and fundraisers)
Use Music and Music Fundraisers with our artists to host events to raise funds for local people and entities in need

Utilize the network, resources and services of our sister company, Rotation Records. We have successfully utilized our musician network to raise over $140,000 and utilized 100% of those funds to support things such as IDA Flood Releif, Musicians Benefit during the pandemic, families in need, free studio sessions for less fortunate and support for the music programs at local schools.
