Kaleidoscope Creates Community Integration
Over the past several years, we have been meeting with community members to ascertain a good understanding of what it is they want out of life and community here in the borderlands. In 2016, we analyzed all the input we’ve received, and with that, we set our priorities for the upcoming year.
2017/18 TOP PRIORITIES
CREATIVE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMMING
We will continue to support Scorpion Bicycle Club and other programming which creatively integrates the experiences of youth, teachers, administrators, families, and community members.
UPLIFT MARGINALIZED VOICES
Uplifting marginalized voices in our community by continuing our web series and in-person listiening sessions, Face to Face.

Kaleidoscope is creating dynamic spaces in our community which connect, and result in, access to quality public space. We currently host one community gardening space off of Elo Paseo Road in Las Cruces, NM.

*It is our goal to fund our programming through the gifts you so generously offer to Kaleidoscope. At this time, 90% of donations to Kaleidoscope Creates is directed to ongoing programming, and the remaining 10% is applied to operational expenses. We will be applying for grants throughout the year to support our administrative and operational costs.
