“Community purpose and Support”

When you give to The Veltway Music Collective, you give to the vibrant and growing Roosevelt Road and surrounding artist communities. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes to The Veltway Music Collective’s efforts to build upon our local artists’ community that provides the backbone of our Roosevelt Road entertainment corridor. Our objective is to further establish and amplify the confluence of individual artists and businesses through promotional events, and online marketing. The Veltway Music Collective depends on private funding from donations, admission fees for events, and our own personal contributions. The music collective hosts music shows and other special events throughout the year to link new and emerging artists with our local music venues.

Another Veltway mission is to inspire and facilitate music education for young artists. We utilize donor funding to provide instruments and music instruction scholarships for low-income students. The Veltway Music Collective maintains an ongoing instrument drive where the public can donate used instruments to be refurbished and donated to aspiring students in need.

Our past efforts have been successful in the following community events and giving:

  • Raised funds and accumulated instruments for PING and Kidz Express
  • Concert Across America To End Gun Violence-Chicago (Raised funds for Institute Non-Violence Chicago, Peace Hub, and Build Chicago) (Annual Fall)
  • Make Music Day on The Veltway (Global celebration of Music) (Annual Summer)
  • The VMC Music Spectacular (Annual fundraiser featuring community musicians, artists, and craft vendors) (Annual Winter)
  • Provided instruments and a block of music instruction through the Friendly Folk School of Music.
  • Maintain social media platforms and presence to provide online marketing and publication for community events, businesses, artists, and other community arts organizations.
