Art as Mentorship needs MORE COWBELL! 

We are fundraising for:

SATURDAY SESSIONS: FREE recording and songwriting sessions at our studio, The LAB, in Overland Park and Art as Mentorship HQ in the Historic Northeast, offered on Saturdays throughout the year.

MINI LAB IN THE CITY: we’re building a studio space at our HQ in the Historic Northeast! Available for students living in the city.

NUTS N’ BOLTS: The LAB needs some TLC including a new door/lock system, sound proofing and acoustic treatment.

Each “cowbell” is equal to $50. Contribute cowbells here!

Thanks to an incredible contribution from the The Douglas M. Risch and Cindy S. Breth Family Trust, every donation made to our campaign is matched up to $5,000! 



Our More Cowbell!” campaign is part of the international Giving Tuesday campaign, which culminates on November 29th. Giving Tuesday reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity in whichever act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give.

Our Giving Tuesday goal: $10,000 (or 200, $50 cowbells!)

Specific items we are needing:

  • 50 cowbells ($2,500): Mac Studio computer
  • 40 cowbells ($2,000): Apollo x 4 audio interface
  • 30 cowbells ($1,500): Improved security in The LAB
  • 24 cowbells ($1,200): Acoustic treatment panels
  • 20 cowbells ($1,000): Studio Construction
  • 3 cowbells ($150): One free studio session with a producer (Our goal is to provide 30 free studio sessions!)

Be like Will Ferrell and add more cowbell! Each cowbell is $50. Get yours by giving today through the end of the year! 

The campaign has been kicked off with a $1,200 donation (24 cowbells!!!) by Merge Records artist Hiss Golden Messenger! We’re so incredibly thankful for their contribution to our work. Check ’em out!
