Foundation’s Purpose Expand opportunities for at risk youths interested in pursuing higher education in Performing Arts and Math & Science Create an environment conducive to the cultivation and expression of artistic talents/gifts possessed by under-served youths
The best way out…. …is up!
Impact Goals Award 10 educational scholarships to students of Performing Arts and Math & Science Hold Annual Awards Banquet and realize revenue from the event. Develop commitment from business community for financial support for multiple years. The purpose is to use the time to build a stronger organization.
5-year Projection of Need Number of underserved students expected to graduate in the arts bound for college Cost of college education (public/private –instate) Historical growth in this arena (operational cost and mission costs) Where do we want to be in 5 years?
The Philanthropic Mindset Donors support allows recipients to: Live their values Build a legacy Change the world Help others in ways consistent with their values Benefits for donors Outputs (and outcomes for long term donors) Partner with world-class organizations Fiscal prudence
Primary Audience Business owners in catchment areaCity government and civic groupsGranting organizationsGreek letter organizationsStudents, teachers and administration officials
Proposed Strategy Build brand and brand identification Leverage premier brands Community organization
Proposed Tactics Build diversified streams of income across multiple economic sectors. This insolates against short term economic volatility Manage administrative costs by optimizing the use of 3 rd -party events. Develop goodwill value for the Foundation and establish elements of income through it, i.e. CD sales of student music, competition entry fees and advertising etc.
