New Leaf Entertainment Foundation
The New Leaf Entertainment Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to creating and providing greater accessibility to art and music education (i.e., programs, clinics, instruments, and music facilitators locally, regionally, and nationally). At our core we want to strengthen and grow Iowa’s current state of art and music education, diversity, and awareness.
Founded in 2022 as a response to an ongoing nationwide decline of funding and lack of prioritization for diverse art and music education and experiences, our organization is diligently working to ensure access to more resources for at-risk youths and under-served areas of our community.
The NLE Foundation believes that every child deserves a well-rounded education that includes the arts and music, no matter their family’s financial situation. By doing this work, our goal is to improve the quality of their education and lives.
As a result, NLE Foundation hopes to raise awareness about the importance of art and music being included in a child’s complete education. By developing strategic partnerships with area school districts, corporations, and small businesses, we intend to build effective and sustainable art and music education programs and events to drive change and to reinforce our core belief that diversity in the arts and music matters and it needs to be fully experienced by all!
