Hocking County Children's Chorus - Community based, non-profit organization

Hocking County Children’s Chorus Featured on New Cause Connector Giving Site

The Hocking County Children's Chorus (HCCC) is among the first organizations to be featured on the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio's new Cause Connector giving site, www.CauseConnector.org.

Cause Connector is a charitable matchmaking site, created to help more donors support local nonprofit projects in Appalachian Ohio. On Cause Connector, donors can easily search for projects serving their local community across the areas of arts and culture, community and economic development, education, environmental stewardship, and health and human services.

The HCCC Projection Project is being highlighted on Cause Connector. Should the Chorus receive funding on the site, they will be able to purchase and install a motorized projection screen and LCD projector in their new HCCC Music Room. Located in downtown Logan on the third floor of the Logan Theater and Cultural Arts Center, this

space will be used not only by the Children's Chorus – it will also be available to our community for workshops, lessons, and performances. It is an ideal venue to host guest artists and offer a variety of programs for our children and their families at little cost. 

The Hocking County Children's Chorus has touched hundreds of lives over its history of 40+ years in Hocking County; once this Music Room is complete, it will add a new dimension of possibilities for our community…family movie nights…piano recitals…. Super Bowl parties…. wedding venue…talent shows and more! The projector and 

screen are vital pieces of this ambitious plan.

"It's a wonderful opportunity to be chosen as one of FAO's first Cause Connection Projects", stated Therese Karnes, Executive Director of the Hocking County Children's Chorus.

"Through Cause Connector, donors' gifts will help the Children's Chorus while also making investments in future initiatives for our community." 

Our region of Appalachian Ohio has access to fewer grant and scholarship dollars per capita. This "philanthropy gap" means the region's nonprofits, schools, community organizations, and students have less support to meet pressing needs and pursue opportunities that can make a tremendous difference.

Cause Connector is focused on addressing the philanthropy gap by helping donors find projects that need their support today while also investing in the future of our communities. A portion of each gift given goes to FAO's I'm a Child of Appalachia® Fund to support future projects. 

"We created Cause Connector to connect donors who want to make a difference with investment-ready projects in our local communities," said Cara Dingus Brook, FAO's president and CEO. "Our region is full of leaders with innovative solutions and ideas for  helping others, and Cause Connector is a new technology designed to support their success."

The Hocking County Children's Chorus is one of the first organizations selected to have a project featured on the new Cause Connector site. Projects have until April 9 to receive funding and make their projects possible. Gifts of all sizes are welcome at www.CauseConnector.org.
