Hello Friends & Fam!
I hope you are all staying healthy and positive during these strange strange times!
I’m currently in fundraising mode for my non-profit, Off The Lane as well as starting the process of applying for grants. The business side of nonprofits is all very new to me, but what I do know is that we have some passionate people involved in the organization and so much momentum already!
Our first Virtual Fundraiser is this Thursday 7/30 @ 6pm ET. Flyer attached! Tickets available on our website.
PROMO CODE: OTL2020 for discounted tickets.
For those of you that don’t know about Off The Lane. OTL is a non-profit founded for artists by artists. Our mission is to enrich and engage our creative community through continued education, outreach and special projects.
We currently have 2 programs running and are launching our 3rd in the Fall. The Mentorship Program specifically has had 500% growth since our launch in March and we plan to expand to LA & Chicago in spring of 2021. Now more than ever young artists need to be empowered and feel supported.
We are currently raising funds to continue educating and inspiring young aspiring artists.
There are numerous ways you can help support our work here at Off The Lane. All monetary donations are tax-deductible. We are also constantly working on increasing our network so introductions are very useful! Does anyone in your network have knowledge about grant writing or non-profits in general? Does anyone have contacts with a foundation that donates to nonprofits for the arts? Do you know anyone that really just loves the arts and wants to be a part of our Donor Team. We need all the help we can get.
That’s all for now. Thanks for listening to my spiel.
