Next in Nonprofits 30 – Instruments in the Cloud with Caitlin Marlotte


Caitlin MarotteCaitlin Marlotte is executive director of Vega Productions, whose “mission and work focus on supporting quality music and art education in schools.” One of the programs of Vega is Instruments in the Cloud, a service which uses a web-based platform to match potential donors of used musical instruments to schools and young people who can put them to use in music education.

Host Steve Boland asks Caitlin about the decision to create a new web-hosted solution to meet this mission need, how that is supported, and how the other work of Vega is supported by this new endeavor. Tools like Google Ad Words and traditional fundraising are discussed in the context of Instruments in the Cloud, and what is next for music education and arts outreach.
