Fulfilling our mission to break down barriers for rural, low-income, or marginalized communities so they gain access to technology, professionals, and education in the creative industries is an ambitious and important effort and we can't do it alone!
Will you help us continue to impact creatives of all ages in deep ways with our work?
All donors are recognized in our outreach efforts.

Any amount helps us serve our participants directly and indirectly. Currently we have a variety of categories and causes you can donate to...
Join the $100 campaign by giving $100 to go toward financial aid to students in need. With so many still feeling the financial impacts from COVID-19 we want to make certain money is not a barrier keeping students away from learning the specialized classes we offer. Many of which may result in portfolio pieces, introductions into new areas of the arts that might lead to professional careers and beyond.
Will you help us maintain our goal of making sure no one is turned away for financial burden?

GIVE TO A SPECIFIC FUND
Put your donation to a specific cause you want to support. Our Donors for specific causes are recognized on our website and in social media the year they give.
Financial Aid - Allows us to fulfill our "no one turned away" mission and gives students in need partial or full scholarships for our classes.
Teaching Artist Planning Pay - Summer income is vital for many amazing teaching artists working during the academic year especially since many are working and living in metropolitan areas where cost of living expenses add up. Dedicating funds for planning allows our teaching artists to get paid as they work for preparing their amazing offerings for our programs.
Residency Travel and Accommodations - Some of our biggest expenses for bringing creative professionals from Los Angeles and beyond to tour the state of Nebraska. Working in-person with our teaching artists is the best way for students to connect with them. It also offers our teaching artists, many whom would likely never visit the towns an incredible experience of small town rural areas.
Internships - We hire college and upper High-School level students from both Nebraska and California to work one on one with our amazing teaching artists, assisting them with their classes both in preparation and implementation. Through their involvement they also get to connect with other creative students pursing the arts in their schooling across state boundaries. Interns also help us create fun graphics and animation for our marketing and social media, help with our website, coordination schedules and information and so much more!
