Thank you all for reaching out and offering your sincere, warm, and heartfelt condolences to the Poiley and Skyra Family at this time. It is clear that Scott Poiley was loved and appreciated. We will move forward with living up to his memory and upholding his legacy.
With that sentiment, in lieu of flowers we are asking that you donate to the Skyra Foundation. Scott was passionate about the arts and dance. The Skyra Foundation funds fantastic performances, and makes dance accessible to anyone whose passion shines bright by providing scholarships. Through your donation, we can give the gift of the arts to a deserving young person and keep Scott’s light alive in all of us.

The Skyra Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded to ensure all young artists have the opportunity to participate in arts education and performance regardless of their financial means.
The Skyra Foundation, created by Scott & Mary Poiley, is committed to broadening performing arts awareness while advocating education and high standards of excellence in the arts. Skyra is dedicated to investing in the next generation of dancers, actors, filmmakers, and artists by offering scholarships for continuing education as well as platforms to showcase their works. The foundation will help various families by covering monthly fees, choreography, private lessons, competitions, costumes, supplies, intensive fees, travel expenses associated with auditions or intensives, and college scholarships.
The Skyra Foundation believes in donating equally to all dancers, filmmakers, actors, and artists. Unfortunately, with the ever-changing politics behind the National Endowment in the Arts coupled with large cultural institutions taking advantage of their non-profit status by evolving into elite clubs, we have lost the true value behind the original artistic expression. The arts elevate our culture by reflecting the creative voice of our increasingly diverse communities. The Skyra Foundation wants to help young creative innovators in visual and performing arts struggling to have their artistic voice heard.
On top of Skyra’s commitment to these budding artists, the foundation will promote the arts by funding original films, video and stage productions that are open to the entire community whether they attend Skyra or not. We will also hire local professional crews. Our hope is that we will keep the arts alive by inspiring our audiences both young and old with the diverse expressions that represent our communities. We have to be vigilant in order to ensure the continual growth of the arts!
