About UNITY Charity:

UNITY Charity attempts to connect with youth through a common passion for urban arts.  UNITY engages students by performing at school assemblies and recruiting students into after-school programs where students are taught a range of urban arts and provided with a forum for discussion of some of the challenging life issues that affect youth in higher-need communities.

After-school programs currently run for 12 weeks and cover breakdancing, beat boxing, graffiti art, spoken word and poetry. Students who complete the program will often perform at assemblies and other UNITY events, and eventually return to participate in following years. Sessions are run by UNITY staff and Artist Educators who are leading artists in particular fields and trained by UNITY to run portions of the youth program.

Administrative costs are low at 6% of revenues. Fundraising costs are 12% of donations. Funding reserves of $205k would cover 88% of annual program costs.
