RME Strong


Be a part of RME's strength by donating today!

In 2014, RME kicked off a three year comprehensive fundraising campaign titled RME STRONG. The Campaign aims to raise the budget $400,000 over three years.

Funds raised through the campaign will be leveraged with the other grant requests and private challenges to complete three
major goals:

  • Our most needed funding is for operations - these are the funds that drive our mission
  • We need to reinvest in RME capital needs such as new computers and video equipment.
  • We need to pay off the debt we accumulated while building the successful business model we have today.
In 2017, RME will end its fiscal year on June 30th. This will end the RME STRONG campaign. With your help, this will be a successful end.

There is one last push for this campaign. On January 28th, 2017, RME entered the last phase of the RME STRONG campaign by kicking off our annual fund Record Sale. The RME Record Sale goal is $55,000! Records are 'on sale' during every concert in the Redstone Room from February 1st through March 31st. The sales kickoff started during RME's 8th Annual Winter Wine Experience, where we hosted our first "Raise Your Record" auction.

Funding raised from record sales goes directly to support more than ten educational music programs, a museum, and four stages that host 30+ live music events a month - featuring genres including, but not limited to: indie, jazz, blues, rock, country, gospel, soul, and bluegrass. The goal of our facility is to educate and build awareness around both historical and current musicians playing music that developed as it traveled along the Mississippi River.
