IPaintMyMind Founder Evan La Ruffa on Univision’s Primera Hora with Alex Hernandez: Sponsor A School Initiative
IPaintMyMind’s founder Evan La Ruffa appeared on an interview segment on Univision’s Primera Hora with Alex Hernandez on Tuesday, January 26th, to publicize our new Sponsor A School Initiative. It was an exciting opportunity to spread the news of our unique new charitable giving initiative, and to invite companies across the city to get involved in ensuring access to art education for Chicago Public School students.
What Is Sponsor A School?
IPaintMyMind’s Sponsor A School Initiative is a unique way to ensure an entire Chicago Public School has access to high-quality arts education for a whole year, through our Shared Walls Program. We’ve worked for 8+ years to deliver our Shared Walls art programming and art galleries to 110+ CPS schools city-wide! We need your help to make sure that these deserving schools have long-term access to these programs.
Any Chicago-based business is invited to apply, and once accepted, we pair you with a partner school and you work alongside them to fundraise for an additional year of our art programming.
It’s a uniquely customizable charitable giving program that allows your company and team to set goals, deadlines, and to otherwise organize your fundraising efforts in whatever way you know will work best for you. At the end of it all, you’ll know that your company’s fundraising will inspire and connect the next generation of Chicago’s leaders. It’s an all-around rewarding process!
