The Full Story
NAVO Inc. is comprised of internationally recognized artists who have made their home in Kansas and share their talent to create unique programs that challenge, entertain, and enrich the lives of communities in the Midwest. The organization is dedicated to inspire underserved communities, as well as work in partnership with local charities.
NAVO's mission is to establish and foster world-class level of performances in the Midwest region by bringing together artists from the area with those who have performed around the globe.
NAVO is proud building inspired communities!
Building inspired communities through arts and education.
With innovative combinations of arts and technology, NAVO offers educational projects in schools and provides collaboration opportunities for arts students.
2009: Reach Out Kansas Inc. (ROK) is granted the IRS designation of public charity and therefore can offer tax receipts for any amount given to the organization.
2015: NAVO Inc. becomes an affiliate of ROK. This means that NAVO can act as a public charity without the burden of administrative fees. In support of NAVO’s mission, ROK has generously offered to carry all administrative fees involved in financial transactions.
100% of funds submitted to ROK for NAVO benefits NAVO. Because of this structure, any amount given to NAVO will be used towards NAVO’s artistic expenses (and not administrative expenses).
