Since there have been a lot of donations in the past 24 hours I wanted to update everyone on the current totals to the best of my knowledge.
Our fundraising total is now at $3350 including the $1000 from Kappa Kappa Psi. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated! It all adds up! Our minimum goal is $4000 to pay Carlos Simon, however, we had hoped to raise an extra $1000 on top of that to cover any costs associated with bringing Dr. Simon to campus.
We still need to raise another $650 to pay the composer. If possible, I’d love to continue pushing to raise the extra $1000.
Thank you so much for contributing, sharing these posts, and for your kind words and support. In a year full of so much “ugly”, I believe it will be refreshing and gratifying to bring this beautiful piece of music to life.
