In 2012, Arts to Grow reached its 2000th innercity child with our programs! With our donors’ help, we were able to provide each child with quality music, dance, theater, or visual arts instruction and the chance to gain a love of learning through the arts.
We are asking for your help during this season of giving. ATG strives to bridge the gap between arts education and shrinking school budgets. Your donation directly supports research-based education and high quality teaching which foster future leaders, and strengthen communities at no cost to working families.
Did you know that children who have access to the arts achieve more in the classroom and score 85 points higher on the SAT?
Donations to ATG will directly impact the life of a child lacking essential arts education. Just $250 will provide a child with a 12-week art program! A child like Ismeyda:
Ismeyda was a raw talent with her singing voice and acting ability. However, a limited reading ability first stood in her way. Through rehearsals, she reached a higher reading level, and gained self-confidence on the stage. She acquired an excellent command of theatre vocabulary and skill—she often would lead warm-up exercises and could explain curriculum to new students. Ismeyda graduated from IS 171 and is now attending Brooklyn High School of the Arts.
DONATE NOW to support kids like Ismeyda, and you will play a vital role in boosting student achievement and self-confidence through creative expression. Remember, our programs are always provided at NO COSTS to the students. Thank you for changing the life of a child!
