How We Give
From day one, our priorities have been to give back and support the local youth and our community at large to seek success through the arts and art education. We do so by donating a percentage of our profits to each of these organizations and will strive to add others.
Soul Purpose Designs is proud to support:
Materials for the Arts – http://www.materialsforthearts.org/
Materials for the Arts (MFTA) is New York’s premiere reuse center, providing a way for companies and individuals to donate unneeded supplies to thousands of nonprofit organizations with arts programming and public schools. We offer a wide variety of events, workshops, and classes to help people see and experience creative reuse up close.
Friends of Materials for the Arts (MFTA), in collaboration with the City of New York and the creative community, is the nonprofit organization that guides and supports educational programming, warehouse operations, and other initiatives of Materials for the Arts.
Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning – http://www.jcal.org/
Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL) is a non-profit organization that offers visual, performing and literary arts, arts education and artists’ programs to encourage participation in the arts and to contribute to the cultural enrichment of Queens and the Greater Metropolitan area.
Their programs for children, teens, and adults include a multicultural series of music, theater, and dance performances; film screenings and lectures; contemporary visual arts exhibitions; in-school artist residencies; a series of nearly 50 different arts workshops; and free or low-cost after-school and summer programs.
Urban Arts Partnership – http://www.urbanarts.org
Urban Arts Partnership (UAP) serves over 15,000 students and 500 teachers in 100 under served schools across New York City and Los Angeles. UAP uses the arts to address educational inequality and provide the opportunity for young people to gain the skills and understanding students (from kindergarten to 12th grade) need to move on to college and careers.
