Encompass Rating System by Charity Navigator


Charity Navigator’s Encompass Rating System evolves on a quarterly basis as we add new measures and indicators, which we call Beacons. Check back often to see how this organization’s score changes.

Charity Navigator provides 501(c)(3) nonprofits with an Encompass Rating when we have available data. Please see the sections below for more information on why this organization is not currently rated.

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-N, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $50,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

The desire of every one directly connected to both A-Team and Tejano Lippz is to support and promote Tejano artists, while spreading unity among our people. Along the way, we do our part to ensure that our culture is alive and kicking so that our younger generations do not lose touch with the beauty of our music and our culture. The support that has been felt within the Tejano community, our friends, and family in this endeavor is truly humbling and we are blessed to be in the middle of this circle that is much bigger than us because it's not about us. Our programming plans for Tejano Lippz is primarily Tejano music. Although Tejano will be our primary music, we also play mainstream, Old School, Country, and Rock. Having a variety of DJs helps us create a timetable with DJ slots that play different styles of music at different times of day, that allows us to keep variety in our station. Our DJs keep their audience up to date with current Tejano news and artist releases and interviews. This helps Tejano Lippz to continue to maintain a large customer base. Constant stream of music content that appeals to Tejano music audience, music is streamed 24/7 thru our Auto DJ, when there is no live broadcasting. Regular giveaways of merchandise to listeners thru Facebook and Tejano Lippz website.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

Tejano Lippz can broadcast right from the comfortable surroundings of our home and will play our favorite music for friends and family and be a promoter of Tejano music. We will be a significant informant and entertainer for our local community, starting in our town ending at the other side of the world We will put up Tejano Lippz banners plus hand out flyers promoting our radio station, in our shows or events. We will set up music promotion for Tejano artists. Besides playing and promoting legal download of their latest single we will create awareness for their album and their online profile by placing linked banners and news. The decision to become nonprofit comes from the fact that our first principle is to educate our community about our Tejano culture. With education comes knowledge to teach our young children about our culture. We also will strive to help up and coming artist to succeed, so they can carry the torch of our legends who have carried torch of the ones who passed it to them.

We also interact with our audience and have seen our viewers and have maintained between 10,000 to 40,000 views per week. Tejano Lippz is targeting 4 events that have been successful in attracting traffic to the Tejano Lippz Facebook page. An example is after the Tejano Music Awards convention we had over 120,000 Facebook users view the Tejano Lippz page. The 4 events Tejano Lippz will be focusing on are our First-Year Anniversary Party, the Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair, Tejano Music Awards Convention, and a Hispanic Month Event.
