Year-End Appeal

Aloha Friend of Keoni Movement Arts,

Recently, a mother contacted me to enroll her son in one of KMA’s gymnastics classes. She shared that people have always encouraged her to get him into gymnastics because he seems to have the talent for it. Currently unemployed, she could not afford most programs and was happy to find KMA’s affordable classes. Even from his first class it was clear to me that her son does have talent. I remember thinking, “This is exactly the reason why I started KMA — to fill this type of need!” I felt so happy that KMA was serving its mission in this way.

KMA’s mission is to provide access to the movement arts to everyone. No matter the challenges, no student will be turned away. We offer financial assistance to those who qualify.

Our generous donor support allows us to offer this assistance, and to provide programming such as our current on-going weekly classes for children 3 – 5 and 6 – 9 years old, and teens/adults and individuals with special needs. We’ve developed relationships with agencies, communities and schools including Y.A.I., Sinergia, Hartley House, Sports and Arts in Schools Foundation, James Weldon Johnson Community Center, P.S. 212, P.S. 51, and P.S. 111. We would like to continue building these relationships, and do outreach to other communities where access to the movement arts is limited or nonexistent.

If you share KMA’s vision and would like to support our mission please consider making a tax-deductible donation*.

Mahalo nui loa (thank you) for your consideration!
