The Primary Wave Racial Equality Task Force is excited to bring back our holiday donation company match initiative. This year the Task Force has selected Diversify The Stage as our charity partner. All funds raised will directly support their 2022 Apprenticeship Program which provides career opportunities in the music and live entertainment industry to underrepresented communities.
NOW until January 3, 2022, we encourage all Primary Wave employees to make a personal donation to this cause and then Primary Wave WILL BE MATCHING our collective donation to make the biggest impact possible.
*This is an unique donation code just for Primary Wave so all donations will be properly tracked for matching purposes.
Last year we collectively donated $5,000 to Black Music Action Coalition. This year we look forward to raising the bar! Thank you all for your support to this wonderful cause.
