Fundraising Drive

MusicDetour is 100% not-for-profit. In order to expand the DFW Local Music Archive, we need to raise funds. We hope to raise $5,000 in donations by the end of  2016 to fund two student workers at the University of Texas at Arlington for the Spring 2017 semester. One student worker will work on web-development (coding the website). The other student will work on collecting music contributions and entering them in our digital archive.

Your donation will go directly to supporting UTA students. One of the goals of the website is to give UTA students practical work experience that they can use to gain employment after graduation. Students will be able to place their work on the website in their portfolio, and demonstrate to employers that they have real-world experience. Read More …
