CASH Music, a nonprofit organization that builds “open tools and services to benefit artists and music organizations”, recently launched its first fundraiser in conjunction with a number of amazing artists and labels. An online raffle is at the core of their efforts with some incredible prizes available ranging from signed sheet music to vinyl test pressings to to an in-studio performance for 10 people.
Participating artists include Kristin Hersh, Deerhoof, Mission of Burma, MGMT, Xiu Xiu, Mayer Hawthorne, and Portugal The Man to name a few. Additional ways to donate come in the form of limited edition prints, a fundraiser t-shirt, and of course by donating directly to CASH.
We have talked about CASH numerous times before (including an interview with Executive Director Jesse Von Doom) about how they use CC to create openness and facilitate sharing within their projects. Be sure to check out their Creative Commons Portal and learn more about the organization at their website.
Also, speaking of fundraisers, don’t forget that CC is in the midst of our own. Help us reach our $500,000 goal – any and all support is appreciated. And if you donate over $75, you’ll be a proud owner of a very cool Shepard Fairey designed CC t-shirt!
(Full disclosure: CC’s Creative Director Eric Steuer is a CASH Music Board Member).
