Turn It Up for #GivingTuesday

It’s #GivingTuesday and we hope that you will once again support the Fairness Fund and all of our young rockers with a special gift. Our goal is to raise $5,000 so that we can create a solid foundation of support for girls and gender nonconforming youth to take up space, tell their stories and make noise in the world.

You can help make a lasting impact with a #GivingTuesday gift of $12,  $50, $112 or $1,212  to help us reach our goal, amplify our programs, give even more scholarships and sustain the vital space that rock camp creates. Yes! I want to help TURN IT UP!
