Donate Stock to 5 Points Music Sanctuary
Making a stock donation to support 5 Points Music Sanctuary enables us to continue our mission to celebrate the magic of sound in all its glory. Through our vibrant live events and concerts, we bring together audiences from near and far, uniting them in the sweet embrace of music. But our purpose goes beyond the stage. We’re committed to making a difference in the world through music therapy, hearing loss advocacy, and enhancing accessibility. Our journey began in January 2017, when we set out with a simple but profound mission: “To pursue the power of sound in all its glory.”
Our story is deeply rooted in a remarkable journey of hope and inspiration. Our Founder and Director, Tyler Godsey, experienced the transformative gift of sound through his two children, born deaf. At the tender age of 11 months, they received the incredible gift of cochlear implants, allowing them to discover the beauty of music and sound. This gift serves as the heart and soul of 5 Points Music, driving everything we do.
