To our community,
This is a week of gratitude where Bay Area Creative would like to show appreciation to our generous funders!
Bay Area Creative received generous funding from The California Arts Council. We would like to extend our deepest appreciation for the support and contribution that their organization granted Bay Area Creative. Our relationship has continued to create opportunities for creative expression that empower individuals to develop empathic communication skills and foster positive change in themselves and the community.
With conscientious advocates like The California Arts Council, we will advance student success, outlets to filmmaking, creative writing, stage performance, and social activism in classes and camp programs. Bay Area Creative has four key mission programs: SPARC Poetry, ReVisions -Therapeutic Arts, Educators for Empathy, and Cultural Crossroads; Bay Area Creative impacts over 6,000 people per year at over 100 different schools and community sites. We are greatly appreciative of The California Arts Council and their support of our work through their: Arts & Cultural Organizations General Operating Relief, Creative Youth Development and Arts Exposure grants.
Their contribution not only affects the number of communities we serve, but directly promotes well-rounded, healthy people by encouraging cultural sensitivity, social justice, and emotional balance. Bay Area Creative also predominantly serves families of color in underserved neighborhoods. Our developing relationship with The California Arts Council and Bay Area Creative has influenced our non-profit's expansion, its reach, visibility, and overall advancement of social/cultural reform!
Bay Area Creative will continue to showcase The California Arts Council's generosity through social media, donor collateral, newsletters, and the official Bay Area Creative Website. We look forward to continuing our relationship and will keep everyone up-to-date on event news, volunteer opportunities, and executive board openings.
