The MC² mission is to gather energy and resources to fund powerful performing arts experiences so that young people may discover the magnitude of their own personal potential.

 

MC² is a living memorial started by the Michelini family to remember Marielle Casimira Cecilia and all the life-affirming work she did within her community at the Jersey shore.  Showcase Arts Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt, not for profit, organization which in addition to serving our community collects funding through private donations, sponsorship's, events and memorials like MC² “Funding the Arts” in an effort to help all people realize their artistic dreams and to educate them on the power of the arts, especially those young people at risk or in need.

Despite our best efforts to maintain ongoing programs and operations, we still have tremendous needs. Over the past year our funding opportunities from tax deductible contributions and from governmental agencies has been cut substantially averaging a 46% reduction.

This cut in funding has a direct monetary impact on regional arts, artists, tourism, and business.  More concerning is the despair and anxiety it has raised among our community. This especially concerns us, as studies have shown that living well involves feeling good about life, having something to do that you care so much about that you immerse yourself in it, becoming good enough at something to take some pride in it, having people in your life whom you care about and who care about you, and feeling connected with something that takes you beyond yourself are all vital to overcoming these feelings of despair and anxiety. Without exception we know exposure to and participation in the arts results in these life affirming strategies in action as well as heightened academic achievement and greater life successes for people of all backgrounds.

Please consider making a generous gift to Showcase Arts Foundation, Inc. to ensure we may continue to bring these performing arts opportunities to our most under-resourced community members.
