Arts education is important. Study after study has confirmed what we artists have known for generations: learning in the arts benefits learning in all areas of study. At PAA, we have also seen a deepening of empathy and community as a result of arts education and theatre experiences.
Community development and a sense of belonging is important for every child as they grow, but there are sections of our local community that show a greater need and also a greater impact in the lives of kids. We are passionate about getting arts opportunities to all kids, regardless of age, race, creed, identity or financial circumstance. We strive to offer every child who asks and qualifies, financial support. To continue this great work, we need your help.
Every dollar you give to our scholarship program goes directly to helping a kid in need get the arts education they long for. Your gift to our scholarship fund allows us to give more support and helps us extend the reach of arts education in your neighborhood. This fund allows us to reach the kids who need us most. You can make a difference in the life of a kid today. You can give a kid who struggles with community and longs for a place to call their home away from home the gift of community and arts.
For only $42 per month, you can offer one student in need a full scholarship to one of our programs. At $21 per month you can give a 50% scholarship to one student this year. $84 per month gives the gift of a full scholarship to two students in need. Every dollar helps. Please consider a monthly gift today.
Together we can change the world, one child at a time.
