Project:NOW is a non-profit initiative that stresses the urgency of NOW in executing innovative programs that leverage public and private partnerships, scholarships, mentorship, arts training, and media to increase literacy, college acceptance rates, and entrepreneurial pursuits in the underserved communities we target.
Project:NOW works to meet the Sustainable Development Goals that global leaders agreed to for a better world by 2030. Its mission is to help underserved youth reach Universal Quality Education (#Goal4) and Decent Work and Economic Growth (#Goal8).
Project:NOW was initially launched in 2014 by actor/entrepreneur Dale Godboldo (People v. OJ Simpson, All New Mickey Mouse Club) and entrepreneur/author Arthur Wylie (Only The Crazy and Fearless WIN BIG!), with support from both Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
Project:NOW is fiscally sponsored by International Arts & Philanthropy Foundation, Inc. (a 501c3). Project:NOW spotlights and supports programs by the following organizations:
