Several times a year, Whole Foods stores hold community giving days (also known as "5% Days") where five percent of that day's net sales are donated to a local nonprofit or educational organization. On March 29, 5% of the net sales from all the Whole Foods stores in New Mexico will be donated to AMP Concerts, as we celebrate our 10th year of being a non-profit and a suite of 50 free community programs expected to serve over 15,000 people.

Help AMP Concerts Celebrate 10 Years as a Non-Profit!!!

While many of you know AMP Concerts as producing big ticketed events at venues across New Mexico (such as the upcoming Elvis Costello show at Popejoy, or last year's wildly successful Alabama Shakes show in Taos), many of you may not be aware of the scope of our free community programming, which is a big part of how we fulfill our mission to provide arts education and cultural enrichment experiences to the population of the state of New Mexico.

In 2016, for example, we did 50 free community events that were attended by over 11,000 people!  This consisted of 

  • 24 Albuquerque Public Library shows,
  • 6 shows at the VSA North 4th Arts Center,
  • 10 Railyard Concerts,
  • 7 Railyard Movies,
  • 2 school performances, and
  • 1 silent disco at the Railyard.

AMP is hoping to build and expand on these free community events this year, but these events are not free to produce.

Each library show, VSA North 4th Arts Center, or School visit costs approximately $1000 to produce between artist fees, promotion, equipment rental, time spent contracting the show, coordinating volunteers, etc.  Each Railyard movie show costs approximately $2500 to produce, and each Railyard Concert approximately $7000!

Our Estimated costs for 2017: 

  • $35,000 (35 Public Library shows in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe, VSA North 4th Arts Center, School visits)
  • $17,500 (7 Railyard movies)
  • $70,000 (10 Railyard concerts)

$122K: Total

Luckily, $25,000 is already covered by the AMP Levitt Foundation grant we received to promote the Railyard Music Series (thanks to your votes!)  We are kicking off a campaign to help fund the remaining $100,000.  Here's how you can help!

  • Shop at Whole Foods, Wednesday, March 29, as they will be giving 5% of their proceeds to AMP Concerts!  We will be targeting all that money to fund our free programming.
  • Become an AMP Concerts member at the Outreach Promoter level ($500), and you can sponsor a specific library, N4th or school event.
  • Become a Corporate Sponsor of one of the Railyard shows ($2500 of donations or in-kind contributions).  See our Corporate Sponsorship package for details.

We appreciate your patronage and look forward to you helping us reach this goal and help expand our free programs.  In times like this, we feel it is more important than ever to bring arts to our communities, bringing people together regardless of economics, background or any kind of label!

Thanks for your support!
