Animate A Way was founded at the beginning of the 2012-13 school year. Since that inception, we have proudly provided our program free of cost to students and schools. We consider it part of our mission to continue to provide a creative outlet that can better our communities as a free option to at-risk youth and their families. We are a 100% grant and donor funded non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. If you feel compelled to help us in our work with students in San Diego county, please consider donating to our general fund. We run on a minimal budget, with our officers and instructors not taking any compensation during this current school year.
I believe that all non-profits have a duty of full transparency to the people, communities and donors that they serve. The nature and goodness of our work should not be inhibited by capitalism. When we put our focus and attention on the students and future that we are working towards, then the rewards are plentiful. To this end, all interested donors can get our IRS filed information at Guide Star and I will post annual updates of our fiscal state on this page.
