Kile Ishmael Glover, affectionately known as Kile$ (Kile Money) was a truly gifted thespian and artist. Whether it was his performance as the Scarecrow in a local stage company’s production of “The Wiz” or his abstract paintings he created for his school art fair: Kile’s talent always stood out like a “BEACON OF LIGHT.”
Kile was also a very loving, caring and kind boy. Every year he donated personal gifts to a charity of his choice as well. As a foundation, in Kile’s honor, we will keep his creative genius and giving legacy ALIVE by working with organizations who focus in these areas. Learn more about our mission here.
Be kind, be clever, be creative, be silly, be spontaneous and be BOLD! Protect Kile’s legacy by being forgiving and sharing your heart, ideas and your joy with all those you meet.
This is Kile Ishmael Glover, and our programs are inspired by him.

Shooting our film was hard work, but fun. Camp XI helped us see our strengths and weaknesses. We got to meet new people and get to know each other, and I was excited about filming our movie and going to Swirl Films Studios to see an actual film set - Yancey R.
I’ve done photography at school and I like to participate in new things. Camp XI helped me learn how to use an actual camera, not just a phone. SCAD was my favorite field trip. I didn’t even know a school like that existed! It was pretty awesome to me. - Jonathan D.
Camp XI showed me that you don’t have to do just one thing with art. I started out more interested in visual art, but when we worked on our movie project, I learned that art could be applied there, too. - Toddrique F.
