Brothers and Sisters,

The World House Music Board of Directors has approved the following funding strategy. We are currently asking congregations, universities, and other institutions to sponsor a key or more at $200/key.

80 supporting units at $200/key:  80 x $200 = $16,000

We have already made a down payment of $6,000.

$16,000 + $6,000 = $22,000 which covers the cost of the piano and most of the shipping.  The balance of the $35,000 budget will be funded through crowd sourcing.  That figure of $35,000 includes the piano and shipping ($25 K) and scholarship assistance for students (10 K)!

I am pleased to announce that Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church, the congregation for which I was recently minister of music, was the first church to sponsor a key.  Their contribution pushed the fundraising thermometer to 20% of our goal of $35,000!  Several other congregations have expressed an interest in sponsoring one or more keys.  The response has been uplifting! Further announcements will be made soon!
