Mission & Business

MISSION:
The Red cART Studio is a community-based, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to inspire interest and maximum participation in the arts. We also serve to empower art lovers, art learners, art educators and practicing artists at every level by eliminating physical barriers to being part of an organized artistic community. We are committed to offering programs that are characterized by artistic tradition, educational value, and a spirit of innovation.

BUSINESS MODEL:
Red cART’s business model is based on a mix of earned and contributed revenue. The model we have developed helps ensure that Red cART remains a resilient organization, squarely focused on the needs of the greater local and national communities.

In a Nutshell:
Our core operations are sustained by revenue drawn from annual membership dues, grants, donations and course fees. We believe that if the services we provide create real value for the community, our members and students, then this will lead to an ongoing fulfillment of our core mission.

Seed funding for organizational growth, including new program development and the expansion of existing programs’ scope, comes primarily from grants made by institutional and/or government funders.
