In 1980, the Piscataqua region was a different place. It's raw character and low rents were a haven for artists. But by 2000, the region was no longer affordable for them. With studio rents rising, a group of committed citizens worked in partnership with the NH Charitable Foundation to preserve the importance of art and artists. The Artist Advancement Grant was announced in 2002. The grant, which provides meaningful substantive support, helps artists advance their work and career, and mutually benefits individual artists and the region as a whole.

http://www.livingthedreamcompany.co.uk/ In 2006 Living the Dream celebrated its 10th Anniversary! Living the Dream is an award-winning performing arts company set up by Zoe Jackson MBE at 16 in 2006 to champion young talent and inspire young people to live their dreams through the arts. Living the Dream has grown to include a School of Performing Arts, Dance Company, a Talent Agency and a charity The Dream Foundation. When she was still a 16 year-old schoolgirl, dance addict and budding entrepreneur Zoë Jackson didn’t merely have a dream. She began making it come true there and then: her own performing arts company. She was determined to excite and entertain audiences … to champion other young talent … to inspire young people to live their dreams. And Zoë called it, “Living The Dream.” In these few short years Zoë’s dream has turned into an explosive professional dance company, school of performing arts, talent agency and charitable foundation, as well as an exciting and memorable resource to boost businesses and brands. Living The Dream’s list of audiences so far reads like a hall of fame; Her Majesty The Queen, ITV, Vodafone, Arsenal, British Airways, Virgin and more. And there’s much more to come. Applauded by numerous international business leaders, Zoë has won a host of awards for her striking social entrepreneurism across the arts, media, culture, and more. Not surprisingly she has even caught the attention of Sir Richard Branson, who has been particularly captivated by Zoë’s abilities as a pioneer and champion for young entrepreneurs. In June 2015, she was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for services to young entrepreneurs and the performing arts. Here it is: that’s the performing arts company dream that Zoë Jackson has turned into reality. THE SCHOOL The school is run by young people, for young people and provides affordable and exciting opportunities for young people age 3-18. We have over 500 students who take part in classes, showcases, flash mobs, events and workshops. We are committed to making the arts accessible and affordable, empowering young people to believe in themselves, grow in talent in a youth-led environment. THE COMPANY The professional dance company provide vibrant and explosive performances, flash mobs and pr stunts for international brands using our award winning dancers and choreographers to promote brands, wow customers and create a lasting impact. We also run dance team-building and leadership development workshops to challenge teams and have fun! THE FOUNDATION The Dream Foundation is our charity which was set up to improve access to the arts for disadvantaged young people, to raise awareness and support for the challenges facing young people and encourage them to believe in themselves and their dreams. THE AGENCY The talent agency champions young talent for work in West End Shows, music videos and TV and film. We have already selected some of the best talent in the UK and represent children, teenagers and professional dancers, actors and choreographers.

The Pace Pitch Contest is based on the Elevator Pitch concept, popular in the venture capital community. It is an extremely concise presentation of an entrepreneur's idea, business model, marketing strategy, competitive analysis, and financial plan, which is delivered to potential investors. The premise is that it could be made in a few minutes, should the entrepreneur spot a potential investor on an elevator and have the opportunity to pitch their idea during the brief ride. Each Finalist will have exactly three minutes to pitch their new venture idea to a distinguished panel of judges and an enthusiastic audience. In addition to broad participation at Pace, we have been pleased to welcome student competitors from a number of other universities, including Columbia, Harvard, MIT, NYU, Princeton, and Stanford. IACF will establish itself as an umbrella charity to represent independent artist (operating as notforprofit) to seek large donations on their behalf with the ability to offer tax credits. This is the only way that small scale artist could benefit from large corporate donations, and the corporations would benefit from a larger, more diverse audience to be connected with in this manner for the first time (power in numbers). At the same time this would provide the opportunity for sustainable earnings for artists and affordable access to the consumer. This structure allows artists to keep their business structures smaller and much more efficient, reducing many overhead costs while creating greater ability for more product development. IACF would also be developed to offer tax credits for independent donations to be passed directly to independent artist and would also be able to accept general donations from the public to be redistributed to many artists. This structure allows individuals in support of arts to be able to allocate portions of their tax money as they see fit while reducing their taxable income. IACF would also develop programs to aid artists in their business management. Target Market There are two current markets that need to be approached to create the right momentum for this charity. First there would be the development of a portfolio of artist seeking to create, and in need of funding. The artist considered would be a diverse group but they would all be required to operate as a not-for-profit and be able to clearly describe their project as well as the budget associated with it. The second is those making donations. Primarily donations would be sought from large corporations seeking to donate in order to satisfy their business plan. There would also be on a smaller scale an awareness campaign to the public on social media, possibly developing some financial support. Initially there would be an aim to aid local New York artists with companies interested in reaching a broad middle class audience but this would only be in the initial development of the foundation. Competition Currently there is little direct competition for the foundation as it would exist, but there is competition in the sense of how people and corporations would want to donate. There will be need to develop a clear marketing plan to demonstrate all benefits offered by the foundation to the donors. Competition in many ways would be other charitable artist that operate on a large scale and IACF would have to clearly show that supporting many artist on a small scale as oppose to one a large scale is to everyone's benefit. There is also slight competition with Fractured Atlas , a charitable organization that allows artist to accept donations through their organization but does not raise funds for them. IACF would have the competitive advantage. Why Pitch At this point the IACF is in need of financial aid in order to get itself into a position to launch. Hiring lawyers to ensure that everything will be structured in a manner to work within the constructs of a charity, registering the business, as well aid in the marketing development will require funding. Time has been donated and will continue to be donated to create the foundation, but the current ambition is to avoid out of pocket cost for necessary fees while continuing to create the structure for a sustainable charity, and a new way to fund artists that will empower them to work with less financial strain.

Please make a donation @ www.adoptthearts.org Mission It is the mission of Adopt the Arts Foundation to bring together well-known artists, celebrities, public figures, policy makers and the general public to save the arts in America's public schools. We believe that it is morally and ethically incumbent upon us to foster the creativity, dreams, hopes, and imaginations of our children. Adopt the Arts Foundation is dedicated to improving the academic performance of every child through the gift of making art and music. Description Adopt the Arts is raising money to keep arts education in public schools in Los Angeles, and as we grow, we hope to move to other cities. LAUSD threatens to cut funding for arts education every year. For this current school year, the budget was cut 30% from the 2010-2011 school year. For the upcoming school year the budget has been eliminated and there will be no art and music classes in LAUSD elementary schools. Parent groups and booster clubs are now required to tirelessly fundraise to pay for the arts education teachers provided by the district, or to hire their own teachers who are independent contractors. This is not possible for the vast majority of schools in the district.

The 2018 Stamps Commencement celebration took place on Saturday, April 28 at the North Campus Research Complex. The celebration included short speeches by graduating undergraduate and graduate students and a commencement address by alumna, arts advocate, community leader, and philanthropist Penny Stamps. About Penny Stamps University of Michigan alumna, arts advocate, community leader, and philanthropist Penny Stamps’ support for the arts is fueled by her belief in the critical role artists and designers play in solving complex problems, and the importance of sharing their work and perspectives with the public. Ms. Stamps, who grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and lives in Miami, Florida, earned a B.S. degree in design and a teaching certificate (1966) at U-M. She enjoyed a distinguished career at Herman Miller and Kaplan & Fox, Inc. before heading her own residential design firm in the Boston area for 18 years. More than two decades ago, she and her husband E. Roe Stamps created the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation. It has contributed significantly to the University over the years, beginning in 1999 with funding for the popular Penny W. Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series. She also created the Roman J. Witt Visiting Professor Program in honor of her father, the Stamps Gallery on Central Campus, and Stamps Creative Work Scholarships. In 2006, the Stamps Foundation launched their signature merit scholarship program. Today there are more than 880 current and 700 alumni Stamps Scholars representing 44 institutions throughout the United States. The University of Michigan is proud to have 60 current Stamps Scholars and 141 distinguished Stamps alumni. Her generosity has made possible the Stamps Auditorium on North Campus and the Stamps Student Commons at the Stephen M. Ross Academic Center. In 2012, the Stamps Foundation granted the most generous philanthropic gift ever made to the School of Art & Design. The regents renamed the school the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design in recognition of her support for art and design education. An enthusiastic and loyal alumna, Ms. Stamps co-chaired the Michigan Difference National Campaign Leadership Committee and is a deputy chair of the Victors for Michigan Campaign. She has served on the President’s Advisory Group and advisory councils to the deans of the Stamps School and the School of Education. Michigan recognized her in 2005 with the David B. Hermelin Award for Volunteer Leadership. She is invested in her community, serves on numerous boards, and provides pro-bono design services and philanthropic support for animal, cultural, environmental, and health-related organizations. She helped build the Grayvik Animal Care Center at Ocean Reef and has served on the Humane Society of Greater Miami board since 2011. The greater Miami & The Keys Chapter of the American Red Cross recognized her with its Sara Hopkins Woodruff Spectrum Award for Women. She also received the 2013 National Philanthropy Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2015, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education recognized the Stamps Foundation with its James L. Fisher Award for Distinguished Service to Education. Through her contributions as a design professional, community leader and volunteer, and as a philanthropist, Penny Stamps has championed the role of art and design in developing creative solutions and enriched the lives of Michigan students and faculty and thousands of others in Ann Arbor and nationally.
