About

Great Day! 

I hope all is well with you. I want to inform you that I am seeking financial support for an afterschool program called "Camden Camera Cre8ivs" located in Camden, NJ. Here is an overview for the program: The Camden Camera Cre8ivs will launch in the fall of 2018. Teenagers residing in Camden, NJ will receive instruction in the art and business of professional photography. Students will meet once a week to learn from accomplished photographers and college mentors in order to turn their artistic passion into a reality. The youth will explore photography basics, film cameras, darkroom developing, composition, lighting, posing, printing, studio fundamentals, event coverage, post-production and more.”

The teen participants experience an 8 months filled with fun, learning and making new friends! This program is jammed packed with activities that will stimulate their minds, offer opportunities to grow as individuals and to travel to cultural attractions in the area with a group of excited teens! This year we plan on visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography in NYC, pro-photographer’s studios and local photography galleries. Camden Camera Cre8ivs culminates at the end of the school year with a self-directed gallery exhibit of the student’s photographs.

This is where you come in! With your financial support, we will be able to provide this photography program to the students totally free of charge! We are looking to raise $5,000 by September 30, 2018 in order to purchase several cameras and computers for the program. If (when) we raise more than our goal we would use those funds to purchase additional equipment. 

Will you join us? We are accepting any amount from $1.00 to $5,000+ and guess what, no contribution is too small - THANK YOUI!

Risks and challenges

Without the financial contributions that we are requesting this program will not be able to launch as anticipated in September of 2018. As many of you may know, there is a lack of funding for arts programs throughout the United States, so many organizations and schools are taking a "grassroots" approach to providing art instruction. The EJM Foundation is one of those groups committed to the exploration and celebration of the arts.
