A New Nonprofit That Supports Creatives With Disabilities On Fixed Incomes

MINNEAPOLIS - Feb. 22, 2018 - PRLog -- Able Artist Foundation (AAF) supports and empowers people with disabilities (PWDs) on fixed incomes who wish to pursue their creative talents. AAF has a two-fold mission: provide music development, education and mentorship to a select number of talented individuals through their artist-development training series of classes twice a year; and grant members access to purchase products and services at substantial savings (50% off) that are provided by AAF's generous corporate partners.

PWDs become members by filling out an online application and submitting a copy of their federal award letter (via download from ​socialsecurity.gov​, a screen grab of the website or a JPEG/PNG of the physical letter) and a copy of their current (non-expired) state ID. There are certain identifiable markers that AAF staff are looking for during an individual's verification process. Companies must apply and be approved to be admitted into the AAF directory of partners.

About Able Artist Foundation Leadership AAF's founder and CEO is film composer, Stephen Letnes. Stephen also happens to be visually impaired. AAF leadership is comprised of two dozen board members and staff who represent an array of professions and abilities: from pastors, educators, web developers, nonprofit CEOs and leaders in finance, to film directors, picture editors, Forbes "30 Under 30" CEOs and multi-platinum and Grammy-nominated artists. Race, gender, age and disability are all represented on AAF's board.
