Through the help of our non-profit organization, Artists In Motion Bay Area, we are able to raise funds through food sales, donations, and sponsorships. Please sponsor us with a tax-deductible donation to help make this trip a reality for everyone. Funds donated will go toward participation fees and travel expenses, which is estimated to be around $3,000 per student. There is no set amount to give. Anything from your heart will be appreciated. You can indicate which student your donation will be applied to or if a student is not selected, the funds donated will be divided among all participants.
