Help us keep the NEPAG doors open!

Dear NEPAG Supporters:

After 39 years of serving the youth of Washington, D.C.  living in wards 7 and 8 through free dance, drama, and life skills lessons, the Northeast Performing Arts Group (NEPAG) is experiencing financial hardship that will severely impact our mission, operations and we urgently need your help to avoid eviction. 

The late Rita Jackson founded NEPAG in 1979, envisioning a place to advance the development of District youth through the performing arts and offer constructive alternatives to the negative influences of their communities.

Without your help, NEPAG will lose its studio and life skills training space on Thursday, September 13.

How you can help:

Please consider contributing to our goal of $50,000:  $14,000 will help cover the accrued rental expenses and $36,000 will cover 12 months of general operational costs.

Help us maintain this vital program! Your generous financial support of our tax-exempt, 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization will help us continue our work with and on behalf of some of the District of Columbia's most vulnerable children. 

For more information about our program and to donate offline, please feel free to email [email redacted],  visit our website or contact (202) 704-8653.

Thanks in advance for helping us to achieve our goal.

Yours truly,

Carrington Lassiter
Executive Director
