Dear JackTrip Community,

The JackTrip Foundation (JTF) was established in 2020 as a 501(c)3 non-profit to support the innovation and adoption of Network Arts through grants, education, and community building. To date we have established our legal nonprofit status, defined the scope of our activities, established the JTF Developers Network <>, and successfully administered 15 Equipment Grants to nonprofit organizations. Our website shows the full details of our organization: 

We hope you will consider joining our donor community during this season of year-end giving!!  All donors will receive an invitation to our community-building virtual event Network Arts Game Day taking place December 11, 2022!

Join us for this donors event to support the Foundation and connect with the community.

2. JTF In-Kind Donations
JTF accepts in-kind donations. Presently the scope of in-kind donations includes network arts equipment, website development, and several more volunteers contributing time to the JTF. If you are interested in making an in-kind donation in these areas, to become a volunteer, or to propose another area of in-kind donations, please contact the JTF. 

We are very excited about the launch of the Foundation and the impacts we can make in carrying out the mission over time. Network arts is a medium of our time that provides artworks at the forefront of the arts, unprecedented opportunities for live collaboration locally and internationally, access to performance and education opportunities, and advancement of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion. As an emerging medium in recent decades propelled by cutting-edge work for artistic and social purposes, necessity during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the public call for diversifying the arts, network arts is positioned for widespread cultural impact in present and future generations.

Thank you for your consideration to join us in year-end giving as we build the work of the JackTrip Foundation.
