The Dark Horse Performing Arts Foundation is a veteran owned and founded nonprofit (501c3) organization that believes that performing arts in the community and schools are a vital part of the learning experience and promotes positive self-esteem. Researchers have also shown a direct relationship between personal expression programs such as Band, Dance, Theatre, and other Visual and Performing Arts Programs and a rise in test scores in other areas such as reading and math.
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.
