Without Reverb, there would be no Class Act Detroit. Reverb is one of our earliest partners. What started with two educators doing after school programs at the schools they taught at has now progressed to a full-fledged 501c3 that serves scholars throughout the city of Detroit. Reverb gave us the confidence to make that leap.

With the support of Reverb Gives, we’ve been able to purchase essential music equipment for female & non-binary artists in Armenia and Malawi to produce and release original music despite COVID-19. Their help has ensured developing artists in under-served regions can accomplish their goals in music, contributing to a more diverse, inclusive and equitable music industry long-term.

We are so appreciative of Reverb Gives and their support of organizations like ours! We've been able to purchase much needed musical gear for our programming, especially new and unexpected gear needed for at-home learning during the pandemic. Since we received our grant, we've also been able to repair and tune up our existing gear.
