DC Music Summit (DCMS) Non-Profit Goals

The DC Music Summit (DCMS) has a mission to EDUCATE, EMPOWER, and SUPPORT artists so they can thrive. We do this by providing a safe space and resources for artists to grow their business, craft, and network. Especially in the COVID-19 pandemic, we NEED art and therefore need to support artists!

As an all-volunteer organization, a 501(c)(3) non-profit status would allow us to expand our mission, and help more artists within our community. Our goal of $2,000 will be used to pay for fees, paperwork, and licenses to become a registered non-profit, which will allow us help artists in need in ways we cannot do currently.

We're partnered with the Arts Administrators of Color as our fiscal sponsor. Any funds received here are submitted through AAOC, a registered non-profit, as we work towards our own goals of non-profit registration! 

As always we thank you for your  generosity, and your support of our community!

About DCMS:

We recently received the 2021 Do Good Award Wammie. The Wammies are a 34-year old award ceremony recognizing DC-area artists. 

In the four years of our history, we've provided support to over 600 artists with resources such as performance fees, educational opportunities, and event networking. 
DCMS was founded and is led a woman artist of color, and is supported by diverse committee that spans all ages, demographics, orientations, and ethnicities. Our mission in programming is to reflect this diversity.
