About

Groundworks is a 501c3 non-profit, youth-driven community arts space in Tucson. We're a team of artists, musicians and educators with the shared goal of developing creativity and talent in Tucson's youth arts scene. 

We are asking for your contribution to help us secure a facility for classes, workshops, events, live music and so much more! We have a great building in mind, but can't move in until we get the funds! That's where you come in!

We're asking for $7,250 because that's the least amount of money we need in order to start the space by the fall. That money will go to rent, construction costs (like lighting and building a stage), equipment costs as well as fees and other miscellaneous expenses throughout the summer.

If you'd like to donate something other than money, we're looking for donations of equipment, furniture, store fixtures, classroom/art supplies and donations of time/services that may benefit the space! Get in touch! 

STRETCH GOAL: $10,000 - We reached our original $7,250 goal within a week of the campaign and we are absolutely floored by the support for this project! We want to keep the momentum going, so we've added a stretch goal of $10,000 so that we can provide necessary supplies for teachers as well as cover any unexpected expenses! Keep spreading the word and we'll see you at our opening this fall! THANK YOU!

UPDATED STRETCH GOAL: $15,000 - This new stretch goal will help upgrade our plans for the sound system, provide teachers with even more resources and invest in more equipment for the space (projector, touch screen monitors, etc). So, if you've been waiting to contribute... it's not too late!

Risks and challenges

Some challenges include unexpected expenses, timeline of construction on the new space and the logistics of running this kind of operation. However, we've assembled an amazing and capable team who has proven themselves to be able to handle anything life throws at them! Bring it on, challenges!
