Global Vision

Little Tribe is starting to build our grassroots movement here in Northern California, but we know ourselves to be planetary citizens and intend to build a model that we and others can activate elsewhere in the world. As time passes and our base of support grows, Little Tribe anticipates extending our activities to other communities in need, both in the USA and internationally.

Music-Therapy390 Cents of Every Dollar

Unlike most non-profit organizations, especially big ones, 90% of money donated to Little Tribe actually reaches the children’s programs we are here to help. Even the best and highest nonprofits spend up to 20% of their income on staff, fundraising, and other overhead. Our overhead is anticipated to be 5% of our gross donations raised, thanks to vital volunteer contributions. We align ourselves with with organizations that have only 5% administrative overhead, thereby ensuring that 90 cents of every dollar reaches the children we serve. (Benefit event profits are totaled after production costs are deducted.)

This means that your hard-earned money directly helps those who need it most: children who are in need of vital arts & music healing.

Put your heart to work and please join us in this cause.

Art-therapy5-Year Plan

Our business plan for the first year, beginning in the second quarter of 2013, calls for a modest $50,000 in funds to be raised. Our expected growth, projected at $25,000 per quarter, is 10% per year. We anticipate maintaining overhead at less than 5% by relying on the generosity of our volunteer artists and enrolled local officers who are committed to keeping Little Tribe’s mission thriving.

Little Tribe Children’s Foundation is a grassroots, privately funded organization dedicated to the conviction that the lives of children who are underprivileged, troubled or in treatment and recovery can be and should be enriched through arts and music. Little Tribe gathers and distributes private donations to community and hospital-based art therapy programs, as well as recruiting artists and musicians to directly and indirectly contribute their genius for the benefit of these children.
