After seeing countless people raise substantial funds for their causes I felt it was my duty as the founder to embrace this new age alternative of funding. If you sincerely care about the arts in our schools it is up to people like yourself to help make a difference. Imagine growing up without any art programs or supplies to truly experience bringing your imagination to life. I know it is hard to but our youth are facing this harsh reality every day.
Any contribution will help us in our journey and please do not close your eyes to this. We have a large goal to reach so our youth are depending on you the people to help fuel our vessel. Our goal is to motivate students’ participation in art programs, without allowing their social or economic struggles stop them in their path to success. We are raising a $20,000 to cover our cost of becoming a 501c3 (Tax Exempt) non-profit organization, Art Supplies(Crayons/Construction Paper/Glues/Pencil Cases/Hand Sanitizer/Scripts/Stage Mics/Cables/Sheet Music/Instruments & more), day to day expenses to keep us operating. www.ycbaaf.org.
This means a lot to us because we will be able to generate the funding/supplies needed to help more students in our target areas, our donors will be able to write off their donations, we will be able to qualify for bigger grants and more funding.
Mission: To Support the creative development of children through the power of Art.
