Overview

Mission Statement

Calling All Crows is a service organization that partners with musicians and fans to create change through hands-on service and activism.

Background Statement

Founded by musician Chad Stokes (of the bands State Radio and Dispatch) and his activist partner Sybil Gallagher, Calling All Crows works for a future when the success of live music is measured not only by ticket sales, but by the impact of fans and musicians mobilizing together to make a difference in the world.

Impact Statement

In 2011, our campaign for women's rights raised $50,000 for Women for Afghan Women, supported advocacy for maternal health, women's rights and women's shelters including over 1,500 actions taken, engaged 419 volunteers in 1,893 hours of service with non-profit organizations across the country.
In 2011, our support of the Amplifying Education campaign raised over $250,000 including $19,711 raised by volunteers at shows for education organizations, collected 6,521 books to support New Orleans' Recovery School District libraries, and engaged 542 volunteers in 3,432 hours of education-focused service.
In 2012, we will build partnerships between musicians, fans, non-profit partners, like-minded corporations, festivals, venues, student groups, civic organizations, and our grassroots network of organizers and activists.  We will organize events before concerts that ask volunteers to roll up their sleeves to address pressing issues like hunger, gender equality, education, and the environment. We will cultivate leaders by providing music fans with the tools, training, and support to make a difference in their communities through our Action Leader program.

Previous fiscal period information was obtained from organization's 2010 and 2011 financial review. 
 
The organization was founded in 2009; therefore, the Form 990 for 2009 indicates data from March - December only; as such, partial year data was not included in charts and graphs.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
