The Story

Your help is needed to keep the All Stars afterschool music program at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel from being cancelled. This school in Asbury Park has lost its state funding for this program. Afterschool programs and music education are both important positive influences on childhood development and success.

For the past 3 years, students at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Asbury Park have benefitted from 3 weekly music courses through the All Stars afterschool program in partnership with Lakehouse Music Academy. Every student in the program gets the opportunity to perform and record their music. 

The All Stars program has changed the lives of hundreds of Asbury Park’s neediest children and families: 90% of Mt. Carmel students receive free or reduced lunch, 98% receive tuition subsidies, and 51% have limited English proficiency.

Interfaith Neighbors, the Lakehouse Academy, and the Asbury Park Music Foundation are generating funds that should cover roughly 70% of the required budget. We are counting on the community to help us raise the remaining $5,600 and keep this program going at Mt. Carmel another year.

Please consider a contribution. Every bit adds up, helping to keep music education alive at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and making Asbury Park a community where music lives and music gives.

Thank you.

Asbury Park Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity as determined by the IRS. Gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

With all the heartbreak that is going on in our country and world these days, its hard not to feel helpless and that whatever we do doesn't make a difference. We have seen time and time again that it does. We pray for all those that have been affected by all the recent tragedies. It might seem like an after school music program for children is not as vital in comparison but we believe it's even more important now then ever to bring the music into people's lives. Music is healing.  It is a common thread that unifies not divides. We may not be able to bring this to everyone but we can certainly make sure that the children of our community have it.  This is something we CAN do.  Easily. Quickly.  Together.  Please consider donating even a small amount.  It will go so far in keeping the music alive for them.
