Bandzoogle Donates $15K To Band Aid Program

By FYI Staff

Bandzoogle has helped launch MusiCounts’ new school instrument grant increase by contributing $15,000 for the MusiCounts Band Aid Program. Previously capped at $10,000, the MusiCounts Band Aid Program now allows schools in Canada to apply for up to $15,000 in musical instruments and equipment for their music programs.


The donation is being made in honour of Bandzoogle’s 15th anniversary, which the company is celebrating this fall. A press release describes Bandzoogle as "the most effective platform for musicians and bands to build their website and manage direct-to-fan marketing and sales."

“Bandzoogle started out as a way to help independent artists effectively promote their music online, so it is fitting that we celebrate our 15th anniversary by helping MusiCounts nurture the next generation of musicians,” said recently-installed CEO Stacey Bedford. “Bandzoogle believes strongly in giving all children the opportunity to experience music education. We look forward to supporting a deep appreciation and understanding of music as art in future generations as we embark on our next 15 years.”

“We are thrilled to have Bandzoogle as our first $15,000 contributor since the announcement that schools can now apply for up to $15,000 in instruments and equipment via the MusiCounts Band Aid Program,” said Kristy Fletcher, Executive Director of MusiCounts. “This generous contribution from Bandzoogle will provide generations of students access to instruments and the endless benefits of music education.”

Schools can apply to the MusiCounts Band Aid Program HERE now with submissions closing on Nov. 14. Schools selected as recipients will be notified in early 2019.
