Shriver Education for the Arts is committed to efficiency and transparency. We communicate with our supporters, donors, and prospective donors by email, postal mail, phone, and other means, both to request contributions to our cause and to educate the public about Shriver Education for the Arts's job skills training programs, employment opportunities, and volunteer opportunities. These efforts help advance our mission of providing jobs for individuals with intellectual disabilities, spreading our goal of inclusion for all, and transforming lives. As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidelines and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidance, Shriver Education for the Arts allocates a portion of our fundraising costs to program services. As a nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal taxation, we ensure our donors’ money is spent as efficiently and effectively as possible.
