Fiscal sponsorship refers to the practice of non-profits offering their legal and tax-exempt status to groups engaged in activities related to the organization's mission. We are happy to announce that Kittsville Youth Foundation has applied for and obtained fiscal sponsorship with ART ACTIVE, INC., a nonprofit tax-exempt organization that was created in 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. With mindfulness at its core, ART ACTIVE, INC. "provides youth ages 6-24 in under-served communities the opportunity to learn various forms of artistry while being trained by professional artists."
They have agreed to take us on, and we are currently in the process of setting things up with this organization. We, on the Kittsville Youth Foundation Team, are extremely grateful for all the ways in which they are helping us, such as, receiving donations on our behalf, which will fund dance and other arts related classes, workshops, supplies, field trips, transportation, etc.,.
Our collaborations and partnerships with other like-minded organizations (such as, Lula Washington Dance Program and ART ACTIVE, INC.) and other community and cultural arts programs and events help us achieve the tenants of our mission; fuels Kittsville's vision and its students; which allows us to continue to cultivate excellence and responsibility in youth through dance while additionally exposing them to various art forms and skill sets which prepare them to discover, develop and thrive on their journeys as they engage in and participate proactively with the world around them.
