Background Statement Leyue Performing Arts, founded in 2003, became a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization in 2014. Over the years, Leyue has been the most popular and active minority performing group in the great Kansas City area and on the stage many times around KC area and quite a few US and international cities, in charity and celebration events.
Impact Statement
Leyue performed in 15 years for celebrations of major Holidays in JCCC and Nelson-Atkins Museum, etc. We will host the Memorial Concert of Edgar Snow on October 6th, 2018 at Kauffman Center, Kansas City, MO. Edgar Snow was Kansas City, MO resident, visited China and supported Chinese efforts during World War II. Every year we visit nursing homes where many veterans reside. We will continue visiting nursing homes and host celebrations for years to come.
Needs Statement Leyue has no commercial activity and all the shows are for free, the yearly expense of training, costume, and travel for shows, etc. ($5500) rely entirely on membership ($4,500), members and community donation. The budget $50K of the Snow concert requires substantial support. http://leyue.org/MemorizeEdgarSnow/Memorial ConcertOfEdgarSnow.php

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
Leyue Performing Arts have been acknowledged around the area, in music center/theatre or in nursing home for the performance with tremendous efforts of the directors and each member. The warmest words, applause, donations from the members and community are the biggest support of our values.
 
But Leyue provides all the performance for free, the expenses of the activities are totally on membership and donation from members and local community. Shortage of funds may have limited our costume and frequency of shows. All members are volunteers and perform around their busy schedules and pay out of pocket for activity expense.
