...   Finance & Accountability

Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-N, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $50,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

...   Impact & Results

Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

We are committed to offering performance opportunity and art education to everyone. We believe we're all born creatives, but don't always have the time, the means, the encouragement or the environment to nurture, nourish and grow that artistic creativity. It is no secret that the arts are beneficial to any individual, community and society, and we are doing what we can to ensure it is there for everyone to partake and enjoy. We are particularly interested in helping immigrant girls and women. Our founder, being one herself, feels that there are tools available to share and practice not only to overcome the challenge of such predisposition but look at it as an advantageous quality to be enjoyed with pride and potential.

What are your strategies for making this happen?

We try to be proactive, work hard and adapt to the strategy: identifying the problem is half the solution. Reaching out to the community in person is our strongest method of growing our network; turning our followers into our ambassadors is another. We offer internships to youth and offer them performance opportunities with established artists which creates an organic mentorship environment, sometimes turning into a long-term relationship. We offer information sessions for immigrant women and girls and offer them roles in our events as facilitators, co-producers, artists assistants, interns and more.

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

We are only in our 4th year, so we are yet to grow substantially. It is our firm belief that we have the substance to do it all and more, but we need time and resources to do the right way - in a sustainable, organic way.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

We track progress by: - in person feedback - following our programs' participants progress after they leave our programs - the growth of our performer and student body - the growth of our mailing list - our financial health - the recognition we get from the community - the recognition form partner organizations and peer arts organizations - personal testimonies

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

We directly serve about 200 people through our education and performance programs We have been recognized by several city and state agencies; given funds and public recognition We have over 3000 subscribers (form NYC, the States and World Wide) We run 5 well-organized, well-attended productions each season We run 4 well-organized, well-attended education programs each season Our goals are: extending the community we serve broadening our board securing a permanent space for our programs offer paid internships
