► On June 16, 2016, we formed with just two team members, a tremendous vision,
and a monumental desire to show the world “what's possible... when we share."
Since then, we've grown to a team comprised of six board members, and nine advisors. And we're proud to report that there are a higher percentage of women on our boards than of those who serve on the boards of the S&P 500.
We’re also proud to report that as a nonprofit, we structured our boards to include more than three sets of eyes on the "financial prize" with two CPA's on our board as well as finance-background heavy talent.
Fiduciary responsibility and donor confidence is paramount at Six Beats Of Separation™, and we’re proud to report that we are the recipients of a Gold Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, as well as a Top-rating Award on Great Nonprofits.
Together our team is an extremely storied, experienced and award-winning bunch. With Emmys, Grammys' Tellys, Producer of the Year, Sundance Film Festival, and MTV Music Awards lining their mantles.
Accolades and aptitude are not the only things our board members have in common.
They share a passion for leveraging two of the world's greatest art forms, music, and photography and amplifying them via the tremendous leverage of A-list celebrity fandom, to champion what we believe, will be received as the most impactful message in the history of nonprofits.
The message being, that the most powerful asset we have as humans, is our ability to share!
Sharing makes everything, even life itself, possible!
(Need we remind you, a cell takes everything that is is, all of its knowledge,
and splits apart... sharing itself, and thus propagates life!)
We liked that date so much, that we rushed to get the paperwork done in time to ensure that 6/16/16 would be our birthday. It seemed special, and it spoke to me as a way to tell a deeper story. You see, something I think we can all agree on is that charity feels good any way you look at it. It became instantly apparent to me that should this be our birthday, why then, our birthday would look good any way you look at it. It could come to serve as a symbol for the beauty that radiates when we share. It doesn't matter the angle you view sharing from, sharing is always beautiful.
And it turned out we were right, it was special, as it turned out 6/16 had some fairly special events take place over the course of history. Some dating back over 800 years, some are still stacking up. (See the most recent below)
In any event, we are excited to take our place in history as we tirelessly toil to bring Six Beats Of Separation™, with its empowering message of the importance and power of sharing, and the stories, music, and moments that our celebrity guests share with us...to you, so they will in-turn, support an
ever-expanding 'portfolio' of the world's causes.
Music, and the arts. are for everyone, and we feel that philanthropy should be too.
So when we launch, for the first time in history, you’ll be able to support charities in need,
simply by showing up to enjoy what we share, and we think that's pretty special.
