THE STORY:

Performing Arts Workshop is an amazing non-profit that provides music and arts education to youth in underprivileged communities throughout the Bay Area.  I've been honored to be a part of the board since early 2013 and have witnessed firsthand the transformational work the Workshop does for 5000+ kids.  Our arts and music programs boost creativity, critical thinking and learning skills - all critical for success in the 21st century.  So if you share our belief that every child needs and deserves a well-rounded education, please donate today.  And as an added bonus...

I AM MATCHING THE $1000 "GOAL" SO PLEASE DONATE TODAY AND MAKE DOUBLE THE IMPACT!!!

I put "goal" in quotes because there's really no limit to what we can do.  Let's work towards a world of true equal opportunity and help the next generation unlock their potential.  Thanks!!!

-Sagar (President, Board of Directors)


THE NUTS + BOLTS >>> Performing Arts Workshop helps students develop critical thinking, creative expression, and essential learning skills through the arts. Our research-driven programs reach children in schools, community centers, homeless shelters, and juvenile halls. 83% of the students in our partner sites are from low-income families. 

HERE'S WHERE YOU COME IN >>> Can you help us reach 5,000 kids this year? Here's what your donation can fund:

  • $30 helps fund one class for one student 
  • $50 buys poetry journals for two classrooms
  • $100 buys drums for capoeira classes
  • $150 buys rhythm sticks and noisemakers for pre-k music classes
  • $200 buys digital music software for rap and hip-hop classes
  • $500 funds a day of professional development for one teaching artist
  • $1,000 helps fund ten weeks of classes 
  • $1,600 helps us rent a theater for our annual student showcase

OUR RESULTS >>> You should know that our track record is pretty darn good. Based on research funded by the US Department of Education, we know that students in our program:

  • increase their critical thinking skills
  • are more confident
  • are more engaged in learning

An afterschool director put it best: "This program is essential to students and their educational goals." 

You can help give students the education they need.
