Dear Supporters,  As the seasons start to change and the year is winding down to its end, the Village is energized and excited to prepare  See more

BENEFITING: ST ELMO'S VILLAGE

THE STORY:

Fostering creativity is vital: "Early years arts and cultural activities can help develop intrinsic human qualities, such as creativity, expression, identity, culture and imagination." (EarlyArts)

St. Elmo Village is a grassroots, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has contributed, supported, and grown the Arts in Los Angeles for over 46 years through free art workshops, community and cultural events, and tours for elementary school and graduate students to seniors.

We are an example of the creative process made visible through the work.

Our goal for this fundraiser is to make art more accessible and equitable by:

  • Expanding our free children and adult workshops as a vehicle for self-expression and personal transformation
  • Developing a Mentorship and Tutoring Program to give youth opportunities to develop new skills 
  • Putting on more community-building events 
  • Upgrading our 12 year-old computer graphics computers to teach youth tech skills that are vital to their education and career

In addition, our facility structures are 50 to 100+ years old, and the historical buildings are in need of repair and renovation. Campaign funds would help repaint the courtyard mural and the Village buildings so the community can continue to enjoy the space.

Our goal for this year is to raise $45,000, but our DREAM is to raise $311,500 so that we can work towards sustainability, preservation and growing our organization.

We are a volunteer-run organization: 100% of your donation will go towards programming and updates. No amount is too small or large! Your generous tax-deductible donation will go towards:

  • Children’s Art Workshops (per year) - $4,000
  • Children’s Annual Book Giveaway - $3,000
  • Upkeep of the beautiful Village gardens & greenspace - $1,500
  • Upgrade computers in the office & Computer Graphics workshop - $9,000
  • Program Development- expand on workshops (Computer   Graphics, Film photography, and Mentorship programs) - $15,000
  • Courtyard Mural restoration - $15,000 
  • Printed materials (brochures, mailing materials) - $3,000

DREAM funds would go towards:

  • Capital improvements to lower carbon footprint (Facility and Building upgrades) - $150,000       
  • Operations (4 paid staff members total) - $100,000
  • Community  Liaison stipend - $10,000

    Donating just $10 helps two children attend an art workshop for free. Every dollar counts. We need your help!
