WHAT IS PERFORMATHON?

Help support Bloomingdale’s Scholarship Program, the core of our mission to provide open access to quality music education.

Create a personal fundraising page
Upload a performance video or sign up for an in-person time on 6/4
Share your fundraising page with family and friends-tell them why you love BSM and want to help others have access to music lessons.
Come to BSM on June 4 for the performances & music-themed carnival!
HOW TO SIGN-UP:
Create your own fundraising page
Click on “I Want to Fundraise for This” —->
Create your personal fundraising page now, then post your video performance when it’s ready (or sign up for a live time 6/4 at BSM). Talk about why you love music and BSM on your page and why you want others to have the opportunity to study music too!
If you’re performing live on June 4, sign-up for a time slot here, then share your personal fundraising page with friends and family and ask them to sponsor your performance.
Upload your performance video or sign-up for a live performance time
Video record yourself performing a short piece (that you’ve prepared with your BSM teacher) and post it to your personal fundraising page (even if you’re performing live, this can be a great way to encourage people to donate!)
If you don’t have a youtube channel, email the video to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the link to share your video directly on your fundraising page.
You can also create your own unlisted youtube channel, upload your performance video there, then copy the link to your fundraising page directly.
Share and ask people to support our scholarship fund
Share with friends & family near and far and ask them to donate to our scholarship fund in honor of your performance
Share your page through social media too!
