I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have had mentors from this organization assist me over the years. SOS "pays forward" quite a bit, especially through it's members.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Hire more assistance, if through volunteers or whatever means. I've seen the personnel work the events, and they are stretched thin. SOS has several notable members and the events must go without glitches!
Was your donation impactful?
How likely is it that you would recommend that a friend donate to this group?
How likely are you to donate to this group again?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?
SOS needs donations to pay staff, "pay forward" in support of other members/artists/musicians, and to offer their services nationwide. Since the recession, donations have been down, so to have additional help (as little as I have at the moment), makes a difference.
Why did you make your donation at this time?
I care about The Arts and the current status of the creative arts in our nation. We need to mentor young persons which will keep them in school, make them better people in society, and help them to succeed in all areas of life. We NEED to bring music back into the schools across this nation!
What would you tell others about this organization?
This organization makes a difference to the young, the established, the retired. Music is a universal language that everyone understands. Continuing support to SOS allows music to continue, to grow and to flourish.
