Through campaigns

Annual Campaign

Our Annual Campaign – held each fall – is our second major funding drive. The funding from this initiative gives all students access to FREE education – two workshops and a class each week. It helps to keep tuition costs down, pays our teachers, and ensures that our students receive the well-rounded education we believe in. 

In 2020, we surpassed our fundraising goal and we’re humbled by the support we received from the community who keeps us going.

Thank you really isn’t enough!

Raise the Region

In the spring, the First Community Foundation Partnership (FCFP) hosts “Raise the Region” a 30-hour campaign that helps nonprofits across Central Pennsylvania raise funding and gain exposure.

Through events


The Collective’s annual 24-hour Blues-A-Thon is a unique and highly educational fundraiser, that gives students, staff, local musicians, and nationally known Blues Artists the opportunity to work together. Supported by the Billtown Blues Association who secures sponsorship and the guest artist, the event both raises funds for the Collectives programs and gives our students the opportunity to sit in workshops and jam sessions with professional musicians.
