Grants ranging from $4,000 to $10,000 to New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Indiana nonprofit organizations for arts activities serving at-risk youth. Funding is intended to support educational programs that promote the abilities and interests of vulnerable young people in areas such as dance, theater, music, film, photography, and painting.
Sheila Fortune Foundation grants enable organizations which are familiar with at-risk youths and provide youths with a stabilized setting, to develop and administer programs. The Foundation uses the following broad rough definitions of "at-risk":
- Poverty, especially in minority populations, influences risk in individuals and families.
- Juvenile delinquency is a major sign or effect among peers in a vulnerable group.
- Parental substance abuse, negligence and crime make even more difficult healthy conditions.
- Minimal education and language barriers compound the trouble.
Trying to deal with challenges of staying in school are almost insurmountable and that is the purpose of the Foundation - to provide an outlet through the performing arts for the frustrated, anxious, and repressed feelings of the “at risk” youth.
