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!
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.
