Girls Rock Austin is raising funds for need-based camp scholarhips and musical equipment with a new crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo.
The first $4,000 donated goes to scholarships for GRA camp attendees, including those from the Settlement Home foster program. All funds above $4,000 will go toward music gear, including instrument strings, drumsticks and amps.
The organization also has opened up new summer camp and showcase sessions for the weeks of July 24 and Aug. 4. Sign-up details are at the Girls Rock Austin website.
Girls Rock Austin, a nonprofit, describes its mission on its website as "empowering girls and women of all backgrounds and abilities through musical education and performance."
