In working with organizations across political, religious, and social boundaries, we aim to foster a world that is empathetic and open-minded allowing us to unite around the values that we share, and divided further that which makes us different.
The Benefits of Our Partnerships
Each month, we select a Partner organization, non-profit, or cause, and offer a variety of events and activities that help raise money and awareness for their cause.
- Power Pass Funding- All Power Pass sales for the month are split 50/50 in support of the cause you choose. When purchasing a 2 or 6 show Power Pass, users will be asked to “Select a Cause”. Simply choose which cause you want to support, it could be Music Therapy, Hearing Loss Advocacy, Chasing the Light Initiative, or choose our Monthly Benefit Partner. The power is yours.
- 5 Points Music Benefit Concert Series- On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, some of the region’s most sought after bands perform in support of the monthly Benefit Partner. Artists, staff, and all involved donate their time, energy, and ticket revenue to a good cause. Tickets start at $10 for these early Wed. night shows and typically feature a food truck and drink specials.
- Impact Storytelling- 5 Points Music works with our partner to identify impact stories that help capture the meaning behind their work. Through interviews, online content, podcasts, and more, our goal is to help organizations discover the real people impacted by their efforts and further share the power of their work with the world around us.
- Monthly Raffle Baskets- 5 Points Music puts together a monthly raffle basket that includes all types of goodies from tickets and merch to gift certificates and donated items from our broad community of supporters and businesses. Raffle tickets are sold at each event with winners drawn monthly. 5 Points Music splits the revenue from the Raffle sales with our featured Benefit Partner.
Broader Community Development and Collaborations
