The Concentric Arts Educational Fund Inc. is a Non Profit Corporation organized and registered in the state of Florida on September 24th of 2008 exclusively for charitable and educational purposes and is currently being evaluated for its 501 (c)3 Tax Exemption Status. The Concentric Arts Educational Fund was created specifically to allow the giving of scholarships to students of all ages as well as grants to artists, families, creative people and teachers based on creativity at events produced by the for profit organization Concentric Productions, Inc. We believe that by using art as a foundation for supporting the pursuit of higher education we are serving to strengthen communities, in many long reaching and positive ways. Since its formation it has become apparent that the need for these types of incentives for creative people is in great demand, and we are happy to be working on forming alliances with other organizations and events in a broader effort to connect and give more in the coming years. The Concentric Arts Educational Fund is committed to making all contributions count. It is imortant that funds that are entrusted to us are given back to the community. We carry no employees and maintain minimal administration expenses. We rely on volunteerism and the generosity of those who share our vision for a more creatively driven future.
