About

Our Mission: Create A Universal Culture of Peace through the Arts & Humanities

Our Goal: Promote Global Peace Through Positive Expression

Our Objectives

  • Promote and preserve the Arts & Humanities
  • Increase access to the Arts & Humanities

History

Founded in 2010 as the “World’s Only Full-service Nonprofit Entertainment Company“,  Eway Entertainment & Foundation does what some entertainment companies won’t do -go above-and-beyond. Some deals leave artists upside-down like a defaulted mortgage. Our clients exit our program with their own business.

It doesn’t matter if we’re sponsoring an independent artists’ promo campaign, or filming a documentary about individuals with various abilities, our aim is to promote and increase access to the Arts & Humanities. From re-integration activities in Indianapolis, to an “Adopt-a-Beach” project in Los Angeles, our mission is to:

Create a Universal Culture of Peace through the Arts and Humanities.”

Eway Entertainment & Foundation, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 organization with the United States Internal Revenue Service. Click here for our Organizational Structure. Click here for our 2016 Annual Report.

To fulfill our Mission Eway supports humanitarian and philanthropic programs aligned with our Goals.  To date, Eway Entertainment Foundation has served more than 200,000 beneficiaries worldwide. Through collaborations and generous donations, Eway has sustained. Thank you! We value ethical principles and best practices in the fulfillment of, and in the achievement our Goals.

In 2014, Eway Entertainment, Inc., divested 100% of its intellectual property to Eway Foundation, Inc. These properties included Eway Global Media and Technologies, Ethical Citizen Media brand, numerous websites, social media accounts, mobile applications, joint-ventures, and royalties from publishing and patents.

In 2017, Eway Entertainment & Foundation, Inc. relocated its headquarters to downtown Indianapolis. With satellite locations on four continents, it’s easy to understand our reach. Upcoming projects include, radio and television broadcasting, motion picture production, video services, and podcasts.

How Eway does it

People are perplexed when they hear we are a nonprofit entertainment company. They often ask, “How can a nonprofit entertainment company sustain?” The answer is simple.

Our structure is like any other company in the industry. What makes us stand-out is we go where other companies won’t.

The Eway Four Track curriculum teaches the ins-and-outs of the entertainment business. From how to conduct oneself in the company of industry executives, learning publishing splits and distribution, to performing a service to the community through charity. A working knowledge of legalities, production, engineering, and marketing is organic as participants progress through our program.

What participants had to say:

“Eway gave me an insight how to conduct myself when coming across individuals who were well-known in the industry.” -Desna Quo, of Yettee Gang

Desna is now operating his independent record label, Humble District, offering services to other up-and-coming artists.

Through Eway Racing, the Foundation sponsored driver Devin Smith, of Columbus, Indiana. Devin is a top-ranked kart driver in his class.

“Racing is my passion and it’s what I do. Thanks to Eway Foundation, I have been able to pursue my dream.”

Eway sponsored Devin for several seasons. He is now eighteen-years old, and is well on his way to a career in motor sports. You can read more about Devin in Inspired Magazine.

DeShawn G. struggled with fitting-in with fellow students in high school. Growing-up in a tough neighborhood in Cincinnati, DeShawn had limited exposure to people from different cultures. As part of a peace education experience with his school, DeShawn attended a weekend conflict resolution retreat co-sponsored by Eway.

During the experience, DeShawn participated in diversity and communication workshops which he credits to changing his life. DeShawn is now attending college, employed full-time, and serves on the Eway Youth Advisory Board.

When asked what he learned from his participation in Eway activities, DeShawn exclaimed:

“Eway helped me decide who and what I want to be. I now want to pursue a career in news or broadcasting.”  

A carefully designed curriculum guides participants through Four Tracks of learning (Introduction, Education, Apprenticeship, Graduation). Participants learn about fields in which they have interests.

Individual Program Plans (IPPs) are customized to meet the needs of the participant. For instance, if a kid is interested in cinematography, he or she is paired with a professional mentor as an apprentice. Upon completion of their IPPs, participants graduate from the program with “Apprentice Certification.”

The year 2017 has seen cuts in federal funding to the Arts and Humanities. The National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for The Humanities, and Corporation for Public Broadcasting, are several groups impacted by budget cuts in the millions.

The need for Arts and Humanities in schools, homes, and communities is more important than ever. Our goal is to inspire other entertainment companies around the world to replicate our model. By doing so, Eway will no longer be the “World’s First Nonprofit Entertainment Company”, which will mean -mission accomplished.
