Stax Music Academy hopes prominent, national TV spot sets stage for fundraising campaign
By Corey Davis, Memphis Business Journal December 10, 2019
Former Stoneleigh Fellow Richard Greenwald has announced prominent new collaborations that he hopes will help the Stax Music Academy meet its fundraising goals.
Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the Stax Music Academy, and the nonprofit organization is looking for monetary support to keep it going. But, before the year is up, the organization will be showcased on a national stage, which might help Stax get to its fundraising goal.
Richard Greenwald, president and CEO of the Soulsville Foundation — which operates Stax Music Academy, Stax Museum of American Soul Music, and the Soulsville Charter School, all at the original site of Stax Records — announced Wednesday, Dec. 4, the effort to raise $1 million in the next 12 months.
