We've raised $2,000 of our $20,000 goal!
IPAY is raising $20,000 to support womxn in the field of performing arts for youth. EVERY DONATION will be MATCHED dollar for dollar up to $10k
Funds from this campaign will support organizational changes and infrastructure that will support more womxn* in the field as well as:
travel for 1 womxn to participate in IPAY Showcase Selection Committee
travel for 1 womxn to attend IPAY's Showcase
1 year IPAY membership for 1 womxn
focus on womxn for Kindling 2020 and SPARK Pre-Conference programming
* Why are we using this spelling of womxn?
International Performing Arts for Youth is committed to practicing intersectional feminism and the inclusion of all womxn and gender-variant people in our programs. We choose to use this alternative spelling to acknowledge and counteract the history of trans-exclusionary language in many feminist spaces and welcome all womxn, trans, and gender-non conforming people into the IPAY community.
