Genesis Inspiration Foundation donates $1.85 million to 27 nonprofit organizations working in the arts nationwide
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesis Inspiration Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to supporting education through the arts, today announced the 2022 recipients of its annual donation cycle, totaling $1.85 million. This year, the foundation presented donations to 27 nonprofits nationwide focused on providing art programming to children.
"It's all about the kids. With art programs being cut in schools across the country, it is important that we step up and support organizations who are filling an unmet need in children's education," said Peter Lanzavecchia, vice chair, Genesis Inspiration Foundation. "Art promotes creativity, confidence, and academic achievement, among many other positive effects on young minds."
Genesis Inspiration Foundation, which has been funding art programs across the nation since 2018, presented these donations in formal ceremonies during the months of August and September. The selected organizations reflect the foundation's commitment to supporting a variety of art disciplines, such as painting, dancing, music, and more.
"I am honored that the Genesis Inspiration Foundation provided funding to a variety of phenomenal organizations working all over America this year, giving so many the opportunity to experience the art education that every child deserves," said Walter Dawson, board chair, Genesis Inspiration Foundation.
