My name is Shamir Riley. I am an aspiring actor and an 11th grade student at Duke Ellington School of the Arts (DESA). While DESA inspires bright young minds like me to excel, we need your help to support talented students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to develop their artistic skills. So, every year we "March for the Arts" to help raise money for scripts, master classes, field trips, supplies, and production costs (sets, props, lights, costumes). We need these resources to navigate DESAs demanding program of arts and academic, and to ensure continued and necessary training for Arts education.
Your donation will make this possible and I appreciate your support through my campaign as it will impact my future work that can provide equal opportunities for me to learn, grow, and influence Arts. My minimum goal is $700 but if I get to $1,000, I could qualify for additional incentives. Your donations are tax deductible (EIN: 31-1705384).
