Frequently Asked Questions
By becoming a UKC Rock Star you now know your gift has a specific goal. You can be assured that all your money goes directly to supply ukuleles to your chosen hospital. By securing corporate sponsorship specifically to pay the operational costs of this amazing program the UKC offers the donor the unique opportunity to give back knowing that 100% of their money goes to purchasing ukuleles.
Our goal with this program is to match a RockStar with each of our affiliate hospitals so that each hospitals’ ukulele needs are covered for any given year. The initial donation is $500.00 which puts 10 ukuleles in the hospital’s inventory. Each hospital has different requirements with some needing more than these initial 10 ukuleles and some less. If a RockStar is unable to completely fund their hospital’s needs, then the UKC will step in and furnish the instruments as they become available through our general donations. A $1000.00 contribution will supply your hospital with 20 ukuleles. If your hospital’s requirements in a given year are less, then we will share those ukuleles with a different facility in need.
There is no term limit for our RockStar program, however it is our hope that a RockStar is so fulfilled by the results of this program that they continue to support their chosen hospital for the next 12 months and for years to come. The UKC will provide updates for each RockStar to keep you in touch and let you know the power of your contribution. The UKC will deliver all ukuleles directly to your selected hospital and notify you when the instruments ship. We will also notify you should your hospital run low on inventory in hopes that you can fund the next batch. And don’t worry if your favorite hospital is not on our list. If you choose a hospital that is not yet affiliated with the UKC, we will reach out to that hospital to see if they qualify for our program. If they do, then we will sign them up.
