Congratulations to WIPLA's newest grantee - and THANK YOU to the donors who are helping make their dreams come true!
Works In Progress Louisiana is pleased to announce our most recent grantee: Alumni Arts Presents!
AAP has received the first $500.00 of their $1000.00 startup grant request.
Since WIPLA receives no funding from local, state or federal government agencies, we rely on community donors to help us fund creative projects across North Louisiana.
Since 2014, we have awarded over $11,000.00 in career-changing grants to creative professionals right here at home!
Now WIPLA needs YOU to help get AAP's new film school up and running in Shreveport.
AAP has already self-funded the creation of a solid business plan, filed its corporate paperwork with the Secretary of State, and appliled for 501c3 nonprofit status with the IRS. They are committed to this project - and to providing an exceptional education to their film students!
100% of your tax-deductible donation to WIPLA will be awarded to AAP to cover other startup costs, including retaining a lawyer and a CPA.
