Time, Talent and Treasure

The Märchen Sagen Academy is a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit and a one-of-a-kind jewel in downtown Decatur.  Building up children, kids learn the the magic, art and science of video and audio production in a 113 year old house right off of the square.  Kids are also challenged and encouraged to understand and utilize their own innate ability to co-create their ideas in the world and not to compete for them.  In an effort to create more opportunities for kids in need, we have established a text-to-donate campaign to help raise funds for our scholarship and teen mentorship programs.  Text MSAKIDS to 41444 and if possible, make a recurring donation for as little as $5 a month.  Funds will be used to purchase computers, equipment and supplies as well as to sponsor meaningful off-site field trips, and to help offset general operating expenses.  We need the help of the Decatur community as we continue to expand our giving and offer more enrichment opportunities to kids who need it.

All donations are tax deductible and eligible for issuance of a Letter of Acknowledgement for IRS reporting.

Our EIN:  81-1910641
