Welcome to my fundraising page! Click the donate link to sponsor my efforts in meeting my fundraising goal. Thanks for supporting Bay Area Girls Rock Camp!

My life has been so incredibly enhanced by music. It's given me strength and confidence, and has provided an important emotional outlet for me. It is my life blood and it's forged me into the person I am today.

I am eternally grateful to my parents who both provided me with the encouragement and support needed to pursue music in various forms throughout my life. They both worked multiple jobs to help pay for the lessons both my brother and I had when we were little and they sorted out forms of additional financial support through bursaries and the like to enable us to attend music camps and buy new instruments.

I want to help by doing the same for less fortunate families who aren't able to do this for themselves due to their difficult circumstances. I'm both donating and fundraising to raise money to give these young women the experience to attend the next Bay Area Girls Rock Camp this summer. Please help me help them.

Here's some info about BAGRC:

Bay Area Girls Rock Camp is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers young people through music, promoting an environment that fosters self-confidence, creativity and teamwork. Although our camp centers the experiences of young women, we are committed to gender justice and creating an inclusive environment that supports a wide range of marginalized genderidentities and expressions.

BAGRC challenges gender stereotypes, encourages collaboration and tolerance among peers, and provides a comfortable space for people of all backgrounds to express themselves. Through music lessons, workshops, group activities, and performances, rock campers acquire skills that help guide them throughout their lives.

We exist to:

  • Build confidence in youth through music education
  • Provide youth with positive role models as they are discovering their own voice
  • Foster a space where youth support each other and feel free to express themselves without judgment and competition
  • Create a space where difference is celebrated and nurtured
  • Empower youth to recognize, understand and respond to discrimination
  • Create a world free of the myths that tell young people they can’t do or be something because of their gender
     
We value:
  • Building and sustaining an inclusive and diverse community
  • Providing services to youth regardless of their families’ ability to pay
  • Nurturing an intergenerational environment that brings together youth and adults
  • Encouraging self-discovery through hands-on experience and risk-taking
  • Striking a balance between technique and experimentation
     
We believe:
  • Music is a powerful tool for self-expression and empowerment
  • Music connects people across differences
  • Making music together inspires creativity, collaboration, communication and respect
