Dark Knight Productions, Inc. asks for YOUR help!

Recommended Posts

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." (Margaret Mead)

On September 8, 2008, a post was made on Drum Corps Planet requesting help and information on how to go about starting a corps. Many sent information publicly and privately, in hopes of helping to get "something" started. On October 21, 2008, Dark Knight Productions, Inc. was born as a non-profit corporation in New York State. The next few months was spent putting together a well-rounded Board of Directors that didn't necessarily require drum corps experience, but more business-oriented skills (accounting, non-profit operations, fundraising, etc.). The first official Board Meeting was held on January 20, 2009. On February 21, 2009, the Internal Revenue Service received the completed Application for Tax-Exempt Status. That Application was approved a mere 18 days later, on March 10, 2009. With the 501©(3) status, Dark Knight Productions, Inc. set off to fulfill its non-profit mission: to financially support youth arts education, promote character and social development, and create performing arts activities. That mission was fulfilled for the first time on August 22, 2009 with a Battery Clinic, provided at no charge, featuring clinician Nick Angelis.

Much has been going on, and it hasn't even been one year yet! It just goes to show that anything is possible with hard work and determination.

Up until this point, we have been operating though the generosity of our Board Members. We felt it necessary to fully invest ourselves in the organization before we felt comfortable asking others for help. We fully understand that no one wants to throw money away.

However, as a result of our recent successes and planned future, we are ready and excited to ask for help!

The economic climate is obviously not favorable for anyone right now. And there are countless organizations that could use the help and are deserving our your time and energy. But, if you can spare something to support our cause and emerging youth programs, we would greatly appreciate it. If a monetary donation is not possible, we ask that you consider following along on our journey and supporting what we do.

Donations can be made by visiting our website, http://dkproductions.org . Click on the bright gold "support" button for instructions. (YES! It is bright gold to accentuate it's importance. How about that for GE?)

Thank you in advance for your generosity and continued support.

Dark Knight Productions, Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501©(3) public charity based in New York State. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. For more information on Dark Knight Productions, Inc., please e-mail info@dkproductions.org .
