About Rise Up Arts
The Mission: To serve all populations, but particularly under-represented populations of all age groups, by providing arts education and events with a social justice focus.
We are an all-volunteer organization. The goal is not to make money on putting on these events, but to charge just enough for some of them that we can provide events and make part of them free and open to the public.
We will also be hosting some events that are at no cost to those attending. We do this with generous support from our partners, sponsors, and donors in the community.
If you wish to make a donation, please send it to Paypal at RiseUpArtsOrg@gmail.com
Rise Up Arts is a non-profit organization registered in the State of Washington and with the IRS.
