BENEFITING: Brooklyn Academy of Music
ORGANIZER: Brooklyn Academy of Music
EVENT: BAM 24-Hour Movie Marathon
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2014
I'm trying to raise at least $500 for BAM's education programs! Proceeds will direclty benefit students K—12 through in- and after-school programs in dance, theater, poetry, film criticism, and more.
Why is that important? Because arts education programs have suffered nationally—and are typically the first to go in schools faced with budget cuts. In response, BAM has significantly expanded its education programs to meet an ever-increasing need.
BAM serves more than 37,000 students, teachers and parents each year (85% from underserved communitiies). We employ 40 teaching artists and provide more than 1,800 arts workshops in 222 schools.
Every $15 donated helps us serve another student. So whether you donate $15 or $150 or anything in between, your support makes a difference.
