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.

Founder & CEO

Emily Kubitskey

Over the last 10 years, Emily’s passion for supporting underserved youth through music has driven her career both locally and internationally. Her desire to work with youth and music started at a young age and eventually inspired her to pursue degrees in music, education, and psychology. This resolve stuck with her in her professional life, when 8 years ago she started her own consulting company which took her everywhere from Venezuela to South Korea, from Italy to Minnesota, working with organizations that support youth through music. After spending the last decade working not only with these programs, but also multiple music non-profit organizations in Los Angeles, Emily is now serving as the CEO of Global Arts Corporation. Her current passion is to not only help serve the youth through music, but also provide development for educators.

Associate Director

Jacqueline DesRosier

From a very young age, Jacqueline DesRosier has had a deep desire to help others. From raising funds for homeless shelters, putting together supplies for families in Haiti, Appalachia, and Mississippi, to working with refugees and students with disabilities, Jacqueline has always felt that her purpose is to make a positive contribution to society. Combining this passion with her love of music has led Jacqueline to pursue a dual degree in music education and French Horn performance, followed by a Masters of Arts in Teaching. Over the last 10 years, she has had the opportunity to apply her belief in social justice, educational equity, and the power of music to cultivate change in her work as both an educator and teaching artist with non-profit organizations and public school districts. Jacqueline now serves as the Associate Director and Secretary for Global Arts Corporation and continues to dedicate her life to serving youth and fellow educators through music.
