GasCanFund gas can
Help bring Scor! over 11,000 miles acrosss the nation through your Gas Can gifts. This crucial fund enables us to plant & nurture new camps as they are in their formative stages. Hundreds of people benefit from your investment here!

Every bit helps in reaching our $3,500 Gas Can fundraising goal, helping to fuel the rig by which Scor! travels to each camp, enabling many of you to drive only short distances. These fuel costs aren't fully covered by tuition dollars, so we need your help to 'fill-'er-up'!

Did you know?

  • A full fuel fill-up of the rig for Scor! typically costs about $300.
  • We (Scor! founders, the Bultmans) travel an average of about 820 miles per Scor! camp, currently costing about $350 in fuel per camp.
  • Our model of travel is the most efficient and inexpensive means to offer Scor! camps across the country. The alternatives are substantially more costly.

Scor! needs a "Fill-up"-- donate $20, 35, $50, $75, or more! Use the donate button below, or see other giving methods to the left.

Thanks to everyone who has helped 'fill the tank' in 2015 so far!

ThanksTo to many generous supporters like you for your support in our 2016 season! Help us get the the 2017 season going successfully with your gift today. We can't do it without you!!!

Scor!-MobileCampaign

Thanks to contributors who gave over $1,200 last season! Please consider helping us reach our $3,500 2017 season goal to fund this crucial equipment.

Help Build & Maintain the "Scor!-Mobile":
Once-upon-a-time, Scor! was one camp in Rochester, and all the supplies fit in one tote-bin. No longer! Bringing Scor! to many cities requires hauling lots of music, supplies, merchandise, signs, instruments, literature, and equipment. Scor! needed a bigger “tote bin”--a Scor!-mobile!

Remember “Book-mobiles?” When you couldn’t get to the library, the library came to you. Well, not everyone can come to one Scor! camp far away, so we’re creating a “Scor!-mobile” which brings Scor! to you & your string-playing friends across the country!

The Scor!-mobile is an appropriately equipped cargo trailer-- Scor!’s mobile storage & ‘work-room’ facility Currently we are utilizing an un-finished trailer, which will be gradually 'built out' to meet our needs. This year's needs in maintenance & upgrades include:

  • $700 to cover various repairs not paid by insurance.
  • $800 to go towards the initial cost of the trailer itself.
  • $220 for two new tires. Yes, we've worn out a set of tires just driving to every Scor! camp!
  • $90 to replace a metal step damaged by a road hazard.
  • $150 for new LED rear ramp lights, to help keep us from falling during after-dark camp 'tear-downs'.
  • A basic low-voltage electrical system for better lighting. (approx. $125 + $135 for a 12 volt battery & case)
  • Bright, efficient LED interior lighting (approx. $200).
  • A basic high-voltage (residential type) electrical system for running a fan & future air conditioning. (approx. $300)
  • Insulation (approx. $400) & air-conditioning (approx. $1000). Why? We now offer camps all summer long, as summer is the best time for many of our clients. However, the trailer becomes a 'hot-box' of over 100 degrees that is nearly impossible to work in during summer heat. We need your help to rectify this problem!
