Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to bring the arts and culture to rural Maine. We sponsor events to enrich our community’s soul.

We enable the expression of a variety of artist by supporting musical and educational events. We also use the blackbox theater as an art gallery.

Our blackbox theater has wide local support. We have received operational support through grants. We have gallery hangers for art and a sound system for musicians. Our seating capacity is 50 but with new equipment we will increase capacity to 75.

Over our opening year we have produced over 30 events. We have engaged the local High School and held children’s shows. Our recent outdoors spring festival was very well received. We have a large tent for outside events such as this.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
