FundAnything, a crowdfunding site started by Bill Zanker and Donald Trump is launching a crowdfunding campaign with actress Jane Lynch and rocker Matt Sorum.
The campaign will raise funds for the Adopt the Arts Foundation, to bring music to the public schools of LA.
The organization founded by Abigail Berman and Matt Sorum, is on a mission to bring vibrant music and arts programs to the Los Angeles United School District, as a way to expand the horizons of children, and to counteract the deep budget cuts that have eliminated the music and arts curriculum from LA schools.
Adopt the Arts is launching its FundAnything campaign (www.fundanything.com/ata) with a video starring Jane Lynch and Matt Sorum.
In the video, Matt tries out some new songs on Jane in an attempt to come up with the perfect message for inspiring kids. He and Jane also get a little help from some of their famous friends who make surprise appearances on the video.
“Crowdfunding is a great way to raise funds for school programs because it invites parents and teachers to get involved to bring about positive change,” said Bill Zanker, the co-founder of FundAnything.
The FundAnything Adopt the Arts campaign is looking to raise $85,000 in a 45-day period on the site. The funds will be used to implement a fully operational elementary school music program, including hiring and paying the salary of an experienced music teacher.
