I (Scott Moore) founded the nonprofit, Athentikos with my wife Amelia in 2008 after adopting our two sons from Guatemala and seeing the overwhelming needs in the country.
Athentikos has accomplished a lot since 2008, but we’re still a “nano-nonprofit”. People often think that Athentikos is a large, funded organization. But we’re not directly connected to or sponsored by a major church, denomination, or other organization, and we don’t have a lot of resources.
We’re dependent on tax-deductible donations given by and through people like you. We have a vision to heal through creative arts all over the world, and you are a part of that vision …
Your fundraising multiplies the Athentikos mission.
For those of you fundraising for your trip, the fee covers hard costs associated with your trip in addition to admin and supporting Guatemalan artist involvement, . But, we’d like to encourage you to think about it in a different way. Your fundraising helps grow I AM ART to heal around the world.
We encourage you to think of fundraising for your trip similar to a 10k for Breast Cancer Awareness, and challenge yourself to raise beyond the minimum goal. Together, we can impact the world through healing creative arts!
In addition to I AM ART, we produced two films which highlight the incredible needs in Guatemala, as well as people who are responding to those needs.
We encourage you to use Reparando and/or Becoming Fools in your fundraising. Show our films to your family and friends, and discuss I AM ART as a way to inspire them to support you and the Athentikos mission.
Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please let us know.
