VIPA, An Evening On The Homefront Veterans In Performing Arts (VIPA)

     VIPA is established to integrate veterans from all branches of the U.S. Military into the performing arts, to include acting, dance, music, writing, poetry, film, directing, producing, choreographing, tech work and other skills unique to the performing arts.
     VIPA was started by and is comprised of veterans who are experienced in the performing arts and are willing to help other veterans overcome feelings of isolation and stress by helping them become part of a new community where many of the same elements of the military lifestyle, including teamwork, practice and execution, leadership and ability to improvise, trouble-shooting, attention to detail and other facets co-exist.

      VIPA will produce original works and established works with the eventual goal of 75-100% of the participants being United States Military Veterans, from production staff to crew to performers while avoiding excluding anyone.

     VIPA is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, and as with any non-profit starting out, the need for funds is crucial in the early stages to get on our feet. We are currently in the process of requesting time slots at various venues and would love to get the ball rolling, so this is why we reach out to you, our friends, our family, our amazing support system throughout our military careers. Please take the time today, and donate to our organization. As I stated before we are a 501 (c)(3) so your donations will be tax deductable, you can message myself or anyone else in the group and we can provide our tax id number (EIN).

Again, thank you for your continued support and encouragement along the way.
