"The Arts are an essential part of public education. From dance and music to theatre and the visual arts, the arts give children a unique means of expression, capturing their passions and emotions, and allowing them to explore new ideas, subject matter, and cultures. They bring us joy in every aspect of our lives." -Dr. Terry Bergeson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Washington State
The Dark Horse Performing Arts Foundation believes that performing arts in the community and schools are a vital part of the learning experience and promotes positive self-esteem while raising test scores in various other areas such as reading and math. The Dark Horse Performing Arts Foundation focuses their efforts on raising money to promote programs currently within the regional communities and schools to offer support. Founded in 2013, this public charity focused their beginning years on supporting the music program at Heritage High School in Romoland, CA. In doing so, it became very clear that performing arts are severely underfunded in public schools and in the community, our goals began to change. Dark Horse Foundation is now expanding our focus and we are dedicated to raising funds to assist performing arts programs across the board in all public arenas and veteran organizations throughout the Riverside area. Dark Horse Foundation works in conjunction with qualified groups to raise funds to supplement the needs they have to reach their goals whatever they may be including but not limited to transportation, uniforms, entry fees, instrument repair, costumes etc. It is the ultimate goal of the Dark Horse Performing Arts Foundation to mentor, assist, and teach performing arts groups within the local community, veteran community and within the region in ways to become self-sufficient and realize their dreams through perseverance and hard work. Every fundraising event will help raise funds to be donated to a Southern California performing arts program, organization or group and veteran organization.
Besides supporting the local performing arts in riverside, the Dark Horse Performing Arts Foundation also supports the arts in the Military and Veteran communities. We believe that performing arts in the Military and Veteran communities are vital for both Active and Veterans, to use the performing arts to combat the hidden battle of PTSD and other mental/physical disabilities. The arts allow for suppressed emotions to be expressed in a safe environment.
