_ The Grantmaker
Jukebox project aims to create a self sustaining music project and music grant
cycle. The process begins with a music project (my debut album 72 Cents)
which aims to raise a minimum of $1000 in profit. This money will be
used to create a new grant; The Grantmaker Jukebox Baby Grant (Second Generation).
will be invited to apply for this new grant under the condition that, if they
are awarded the grant, they must pledge to raise $1000 as part of their project
launch and this money must be used to create yet another grant; The Grantmaker Jukebox Baby Grant (Third Generation).
Each new grant recipient will be responsible for promoting their baby grant via their networks and choosing the winner. However there will be a support group created via facebook for grant recipients and general supporters of the project.
My goal is to support at least 5 generations of grant recipients, though the facebook community and during that time create a think tank of interested associates to develop ideas for keeping the cycle alive. This might involve generating a backup fund, in the case of unsuccessful projects.
