MusicCounts! is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that plans and runs Cantonstock - a fun one-day music festival in November that features all music groups from all the Canton Public Schools, and has raffles, silent auction items, games, concessions, and more! This is our only major fundraiser.
The rest of the school year, we meet for an hour each month with the Canton Public Schools Performing Arts Department to review their written funding requests that detail critical needs and creative ideas. We discuss and vote on funding (using the money raised at Cantonstock, and from ads for our fabulous program booklet.) We take great care and pride to ensure most of the funds allocated will be money well spent, benefit as many students and possible, and have long-term impact.
We are a small group that has a big impact! We only had 12 board members in 2018-19, and several will not be returning next year (due to graduations.) As such, we need parents/music supporters - especially those in the lower grades - to step up and join our board!
