Since our founding in 2011 we have always run things here at Tree Fall Sounds in the spirit of a non-profit. We are now transforming our little record label into a true non-profit, expanding our mission, and extending our focus beyond that of a record label. Our new Mission Statement…
“Tree Fall Sounds is a non-profit dedicated to supporting, fostering, and inspiring sustainable creativity. We embrace localism, collaborating with individuals and organizations for the benefit of arts and culture in the communities where we live.”
Our ultimate goal is to provide support to established local artists, to foster the growth of young artists, and to inspire artistic endeavors of all kinds. Bringing artists from all walks of life together, we hope to generate sustainable creativity throughout the metroplex.
One of our purposes will be to provide foundation-type support to various entities. To that end, we are honored to announce our very first partnership with W.E. Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy in Oak Cliff.
W.E. Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy is a DISD middle school for students who have an interest in the fine arts and who wish to develop their individual artistic talents. It is the only Fine Arts Academy in the district offering concentrations in visual art, band, choir, dance, international dance, mariachi, orchestra, piano, and theater. 85.8% of the students at Greiner come from economically disadvantaged homes and less than 0.2% of the school’s annual budget is directed towards co-curricular/extracurricular activities. Needless to say, they need some funding.
In the coming months we will be announcing a series of fundraisers with proceeds going to the development and support of W.E. Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy’s Department of Music.
Selfishly, Greiner students walk past our home/office every day. We couldn’t be more excited to support the development of the music program for these young men and women, and we can’t wait to see more Greiner students sitting on our retaining wall, waiting for their rides home, with instrument cases in hand.
We hope you will find it in your music loving hearts to help raise badly needed funds for these budding young musicians. We hope you will join us in spreading the passion for local music. We hope you will help us inspire those that will be responsible for the future of arts and culture in our communities.
Support. Foster. Inspire.
