Recently the Board of Directors organized PLAYA into two connected nonprofit corporations.

PLAYA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to the Artists’ and Scientists’ Residency Program’s site and facilities.

PLAYA is the legal name of the new organization in the process of gaining its 501(c)(3) status. It will be dedicated to the Artists’ and Scientists’ Residency Program’s programming.

PLAYA’s and PLAYA Foundation’s legal advisor has counseled us that donations to either organization are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
