#Give70 - A giving campaign commemorating our 70th year
Heid Music has been an active member of our communities since 1948. During that time, we have given back through a variety of ways, including donating our time, talents and resources.
As we celebrate our 70th anniversary this year, we are thrilled to engage our team in the process of giving and making a positive impact on the lives of others!
What is #Give70?
#Give70 is our way of saying “thank you" to those who have supported us over the years, while serving as a platform to make a difference at the same time. In fact, #Give70 is just one way we’ll be participating in fun, engaging programming aimed at celebrating our customers, communities and team members in 2018.
How does #Give70 work?
All Heid Music team members have an opportunity to select a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization to receive a $70 gift from Heid Music. In addition, team members may make an even bigger impact by adding onto the $70 gift with a donation value of their choice.
Even better, we’re opening up the campaign to all qualified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, from food banks to humane societies, in our Wisconsin and Upper Penninsula service areas! While we typically keep Heid Music donations connected to our mission of supporting music and music education in our communities, #Give70 is a unique opportunity in that all established 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations are eligible because we know that our people are difference-makers and that they’re deeply rooted in their communities.
Follow Along & Share Your #Give70 Story
Each month, we'll feature some of our nonprofit recipients and photos of our team members and their testimonials on social media:
And just maybe this will be the inspiration you and others in our communities need to go out and spread some goodwill. If you do, we invite you to share your story with us on social media by tagging @HeidMusic and using #Give70.
"I elected for the Christine Anne Domestic Abuse Services to receive a donation because I strive to support organizations that impact & empower women and children. They are there to provide the utmost support during a time when, it may seem to some women, that nobody is there for them. I hope that they continue to help women & children in my community for many years to come, because everyone needs to know that someone is there for them, especially during their darkest days." - Megan
"I feel the Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra should have my donation nomination because they're on a mission to build community through music in order to engage, educate and enrich the lives of those living in Oshkosh and beyond." - Brandon
"I chose Saving Paws Animal Rescue because I volunteered there during high school and our family adopted one of our dogs from Savings Paws. From these experiences I got to see how many animals they help and how kind the volunteers are. I have a lot of different pets at home so finding an organization that works to improve the lives of animals is very important to me." - Morgan

"I chose Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin to donate to because I don't think anyone should go hungry. I've struggled in the past and not being able to feed your family is a horrible feeling that no one should have to experience." - Andrea
"I chose to #Give70 to Unity Hospice in Green Bay in memory of my grandma. She spent her last days at Unity Hospice and our family was so impressed with the personalized care she received. Their staff made a very difficult time a bit easier. The hospice nurses are truly angels on earth!" - Jill
"I do feel a community band is a way to keep people active in music of all ages, and so I chose to #Give70 to the Neenah Community Band. I live in the town of Neenah and I enjoy any fine arts and activites that help enrich our community. Who knows... maybe someday when I retire I may want to join." - Tim
"I love animals. My 3 cats are extremely spoiled. I chose the Fox Valley Humane Association to receive this donation in hopes that it can be used to spoil some other well deserving creatures who are not as fortunate." - Amanda
