Donating time, money and resources to the community is core to our principles at Starry Night. As a mission driven Social Business, we are dedicated to giving back a portion of our revenue to support our collective culture and help emerging artists flourish and contribute to their communities as well.
For every student that enrolls in ART School, we provide a free license to an emerging artist from a marginalized community in the U.S and abroad. Over the last year we have given away over $30,000 in scholarships, to artists living as far away as New Zealand, Australia, the U.K., Ireland, even Zimbabwe, and we’re only getting started.
Over the past several years we have served hundreds of artists and grown into a multi-program organization, and become more compelled than ever find ways of contributing – and that’s why we’ve formalized our giving strategy.

Beyond Giving Money
Our staff are encouraged and compensated for their volunteer time in the community at the organization of their choice. Currently, Starry Night Programs’ Director, Monika Proffitt, serves on the YLC Committee for Boystown, a non-profit organization that is near and dear to her heart that helps young boys and girls, aged 12 to 18 who are out on their own.
