Nov 19: Give to the Max Day for "Biracial & Rural"

Even though Biracial & Rural was shelved in 2020 doesn't mean the work is over. Far from it! Fundraising is still needed to make it happen. Would you join us for the ...

Great MN Give Together!

Give to the Max Day 2020 is Thursday, November 19.

Read an update on the project and about the original impulse for this autobiographic performance art piece with community singing and dance at 

We've been developing new offerings during this time.  Please checkout our work around My Grandmother's Hands and Freeing Refrains.  
  • My Grandmother's Hands:  We are facilitating readings of this book by Resmaa Menakem and holding space for continuing the practices in community.  Sign up for the "My Grandmother's Hands" list of the Newsletter to hear when the Spring groups are organized.
  • Freeing Refrains is an online reading and song share based on the writing for the UCC Musician's Association.  Coming in January 2021.  

We hope you are excited to support Biracial & Rural on Give to the Max Day.  

Please give generously on Nov 19! 

You can contribute to the project at the GiveMN.org link or the giving widget on the right side of this page.  

Points Of Light Music (PLM) is a fiscally sponsored project of Springboard for the Arts. What that means is that Springboard for the Arts has a legal contract with PLM to allow us to use their non-profit status to do fundraising.  When you make a contribution to Biracial and Rural, technically you're donating to Springboard for the Arts and then they regrant the funds to us (after taking a 5-7% administration fee*).  

On Give to the Max Day, Springboard is waiving their 5% administration fee on GiveMN.org transactions to encourage giving.  Translation:  Thu, Nov 19, 2020** is the best day to contribute to Biracial and Rural.

If you'd like to support Springboard and their mission for supporting artists (and communities) with resources to make a living and a life, go to https://givemn.org/organization/Springboard-For-The-Arts

Thank you for supporting Biracial & Rural on Nov. 19!
* Why the 5-7% fee?  Springboard takes 5% for GiveMN.org transactions and 7% for all other contributions via cash or check***.  GiveMN.org charges 6.9% per transaction and so Springboard lowers their admin fee to 5% for GiveMN.org donations to help artists retain more of your contribution.  On Give to the Max Day (11/14/19), Springboard is waiving their admin fee all together, so this is the best day to give!

** Unfortunately, this does not apply to donations placed in the preceding days where GiveMN.org allows folks to schedule their giving.

*** If you'd like to contribute by check, make it out to "Springboard for the Arts" with "Points of Light Music" in the memo line, then mail it to "Points of Light Music, P.O. Box 11791, St. Paul, MN 55111."
