Let us put on a Gigs4Good concert for YOU! Apply to be a 2013 Team Up nonprofit partner.
Calling all Seattle nonprofits!
Are you looking for more ways to attract and engage with young professionals in the community, online and off? Always wanted to host a cool benefit concert, but not sure you have the capacity, staff, or knowledge to put one together? Do you have a Facebook and Twitter account, but would like help in learning how to better utilize it?
You’re in luck. In case you missed it, applications are OPEN to become one of our 2013 Gigs4Good beneficiaries!
What does that mean? Well, by submitting an (quick) application – telling us about who you are, what you do, and whom you serve – you may become one of our nonprofit partners in 2013. If selected, Team Up for Nonprofits will work directly with your organization to produce a show exclusively for YOU with top music talent and you keep the proceeds*.
We also want to help you connect with the crowd and young professionals in their 20’s and 30’s, beyond your Gigs4Good show. So, as a nonprofit partner, we will be supporting you through our social media channels and provide dedicated training to answer your questions and help you navigate and leverage sites like Twitter and Facebook.
Over the past 2 years, Team Up has produced 12 shows at venues like the Triple Door, Tractor Tavern, and Hard Rock Café, and raised $35,000 for Washington State nonprofits such as Climate Solutions, PAWS, Rainier Valley Food Bank, and Seattle Works, and helped them build more awareness and a larger support system.
We only host 4-5 shows a year, but don’t let that discourage you from applying! There is a lot that goes into the selection process and we try to get different types and sizes of orgs from various causes.
IMPORTANT: We’re excited to share that this year we are working on more ways to support the nonprofit community, beyond our Gigs4Good shows. By just applying, you become eligible to join our own network of local nonprofits and get exclusive access to social media/nonprofit resources and are the FIRST group we go to if we are able to host additional, smaller events and trainings next year.
Application deadline has been extended to midnight, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5.
Apply (HERE) and please share with other great nonprofits you know!
*$5 of ticket price goes to support Team Up expenses.
