Thank you 2020 Showcase Selection Committee!
Cheers to our incredible Selection Committee Chairs, who served on  their last committee this summer.

2020 Showcase Selection Committee
Rebecca Podsednik has guided IPAY's Showcase  Selection Committee with a steady  hand for the last three years. Her  valuable insight as a presenter in the field of performing arts for young people  and deep commitment to equitable process  has been vital during her tenure as the Selection Committee Chair. Over the last three years, Rebecca has welcomed an entirely new group of committee members, bringing unheard voices and perspectives to the review process.

Rebecca worked with the IPAY staff year-round to guide the application submission and review process towards success, with logistical support  from Co-Chair,   Jim Packard. We are so grateful for their hard work, resources and energy, and  their service to our mission.

Thank you Rebecca and Jim!

Thank you to all of the donors who contributed to this campaign. 
We reached 22% of our goal, raising $4,400.

While we did not make our final go al in the allotted time frame of 30 days, we will continue to fundraise for this effort until we do. This means not only relying on our existing donor base, but also reaching out to new donors. We're still matching all donations 1:1, and you can still help!
If you know anyone who you think would support our initiative for WOMXN 2020, please NOMINATE them by filling out this form!

If you are as passionate as we are about making a long term commitment to increasing access for womxn in the field, please sign up to make a monthly donation, and IPAY will continue to match your support.  Just $5 per month, doubled by IPAY, would provide over $100 of support for 
our global community of womxn.

Stay tuned for more developments on our efforts as Showcase approaches. We'll see you in Philadelphia in January 2020, where we'll be  adding a new award to celebrate the achievements of womxn in the field of performing arts for youth!
