As with many other community arts organizations, we have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to cancelling our April 4 Recital and Fundraiser, the majority of our upcoming gigs, classes, school programs, and studio rentals are on indefinite hold, if they have not been cancelled outright. This means lost revenue and lean times for a small nonprofit like Odaiko Sonora.
It costs us about $5K–6K a month to operate the group and studio. We ask you to consider helping us through the challenges ahead with even a small donation. You’ve most likely seen us FREE at festivals, parades, schools, and marathons. Just a few dollars from each of the nearly 120,000 people who enjoy our performances each year will keep us up and running.
Here are some easy ways to support us:
- Venmo to “Odaiko Sonora”
- PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Mail a check to Odaiko Sonora, 5732 E. 2nd St. Tucson, AZ 85711
- If you order from Amazon, use Amazon Smile instead. It’s the exact same interface as Amazon, but you can use the “Supporting” dropdown menu to designate Odaiko Sonora as the charity receiving a portion of the sale.
Although the next several months will be difficult, the support of our community has always made us resilient. With your help, we’ll get through this, too!
