THE STORY:

This holiday season, all I want is to make sure at-risk kids have access to high quality arts education. As a former high school band geek, it shocks me that not all schools can offer students high quality arts classes. The arts touched my life and helped me become the person I am today. You can help give kids the same opportunity by donating to Performing Arts Workshop -- an expert leader in arts education for the last 49 years. 

A small $15 donation will turn into $30. ($30 will help fund one class for one student!) We'll put your donation to work immediately in order to reach 5,000 kids this year. Thank you! 

Love, 

Beverly

Here's a little more about Performing Arts Workshop and this campaign: 

In a nutshell, we ignite young minds through the arts. 

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

ALL GIFTS WILL BE MATCHED >>> If we meet our $10,000 goal by December 31st, 2014, a generous donor will match your donations! Please help us take advantage of this amazing opportunity!

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:

  1. increase their critical thinking skills
  2. are more confident
  3. 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 and deserve. #IHeartArtsEducation
