Award-winning worship artist Stephen B. Steward, in partnership with LOV Olive Branches, CDC (LOBCDC) – a nonprofit organization serving at-risk youth, announces the unveiling of the official IndieGogo crowd-funding campaign in support of the 2nd annual “SBS Youth Talent Competition.”
Designed to showcase talented local youth and celebrate music and arts programs in education, the competition has become a highly anticipated summer event in the Greater Los Angeles area. Now, to expand its impact, Steward and LOBCDC are extending an invitation to donors to join the fight to equip, empower, and educate Los Angeles’ at-risk youth with their financial contributions. Seeking donations starting as little as $5, all contributions will be rewarded with a token of gratitude that can include up to a 60-minute private concert, a VIP package catered lunch for one, and more.
With a goal set of $10,094, the collected contributions will directly benefit the youth as follows:
• Youth Scholarships – $4,800
• Public Awareness & Outreach – $2,799
• Venue Fees and Audio Equipment Costs – $2,295
• Miscellaneous – $200
All donations are tax-deductible. For more information on how you can help, please visit the campaign page embedded below to contribute today.
The pledge announcement succeeds Steward’s continued recognition of his debut album, ENTER YOUR GATES, which debuted at #10 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Album charts. Mentored by late gospel icon Andraé Crouch, who is also featured on his dynamic debut single “With My Whole Heart,” Steward’s soul-stirring music has landed him on a number of nationally recognized television platforms including The Word Network and BET’s “Bobby Jones Gospel” as well as mention in ‘S2S’ Magazine and The Huffington Post.
