Year Round

Through our Fiscal Sponsorship with the International Association of Blacks in Dance (IABD) Davis Inspiration Studios accepts donations yearound

Inaugural Capital Campaign for an Eco-Friendly Arts Center in Altadena, Ca.

GOAL: 1,000 supporters by September 23, 2021

WHY NOW:
Due to COVID-19 less than 45% of Los Angeles County residents are currently employed. With a fully functional economy 16% of LA county jobs belong to creative fields. Many of those creatives lack the ability to effectively maintain steady income in their creative profession.

HOW DONATIONS WILL BE USED:
-To facilitate Davis Inspiration Studios’ mission to develop an artist's ability to be viable through practical principles of faith in Christ, life planning, financial independence and creative interchangeability in order to solve the “starving artist” dilemma.
-Art spaces for artists and art organizations.
-Artist viability workshops and classes.
-Performance stages, rehearsal & recording studios, edit bays, cycloramas and more.

Although this inaugural contribution of $1,000 is less than 1% of the total budget to accomplish this goal, a donation as small as $1.00 from 1,000 people communicates to major funders the amount of people who believe this is a necessary establishment for the arts and for artists.


Thank you for your donation in any amount to facilitate the inaugural campaign of this state of the art, Eco-Friendly creative space! You can follow the frequent updates to the fundraiser by clicking here.
