For the Record

      TBH tries its hardest to be transparent in everything we do. For the record, here are a few things you might like to know!

                                                                         

 

                                                                    Statement of Purpose

   The purpose of this corporation is:

  • To educate students in the use of cross platform media equipment such as proper use of video cameras, editing systems, and web design, while also teaching responsible storytelling, journalistic skills, and social media use

* TBH, Inc is currently fiscally sponsored by Independent Arts & Media (IAM), while it works to obtain its own nonprofit status. IAM  collects and holds TBH's grants and donations until such time as they are needed by TBH so that grantors and donors may take advantage of the nonprofit giving opportunity and the tax benefits that come with it.
