Yuga Labs Teams Up to Donate $150K to Miami Music Programs
Yuga Labs is teaming up with NTS Radio to donate $150,000 to support local music programs and education in Miami.
The funds, which will be donated to Music Access Miami, will go toward making music more accessible to all.
"The funds will be donated to Music Access Miami, an organization that believes, as we do, that at the core of healthy communities and thriving young people lies access to consistent forms of self-expression, access to the arts, and access to music education," the team wrote on Twitter. "We are so excited to be working with
NTS Radio, a cultural institution that shares our values of supporting artists and community at every turn."
Yuga Labs is also donating an extra $1 for every $1 spent on Bored & Hungry, an NFT-inspired restaurant franchise created by Andy Nguyen, at its Miami Art Week party.
“Bored Ape Yacht Club has had a vital link to music, art, and culture since the very beginning," said Yuga Labs co-founder Wylie Aronow. "Our community comes together and thrives where technology and culture intersect to spark creativity.”
“Music Access Miami is making a vital contribution by democratizing access to music education for all Miami youth," added co-founder Greg Solano. "We are thrilled to partner with NTS Radio for the latest investment in the vibrant future of our hometown."
This is the second installment of Yuga Labs' commitment to donate $1 million to support art and education in Miami.
“Yuga Labs’s deep investment in education and arts in Miami is incredibly inspiring and models great corporate citizenship,” said president and CEO of The Miami Foundation, Rebecca Fishman Lipsey. “We’re on a mission to ensure all youth in Miami have access to the transformational power of the arts, and this investment will open a lot of doors for our community.”
