Thank you to MyRegistry.com for choosing Arts to Grow as the featured nonprofit wish list! The wish list offers our donors a convenient and easy way to provide art programs to our children growing up in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, and other inner-city neighborhoods in New York City and Newark, NJ.
This year, we have lost funding for programs in music, theater, and visual arts. Through this wish list, we are looking to specifically seek funding for the following programs:
- A Percussion Ensemble at IS 302/CHLDC, Cypress Hills, Brooklyn where 20 students will participate in 20 week program January – June 2013
- A Theater Workshop at the Academy Street Firehouse, Newark, NJ where 40 students will participate in a 20 week program January – June 2013
- Violin Classes IS 171/CHLDC, Cypress Hills, Brooklyn where 12 students will participate in 20 week program January – June 2013
In today’s competitive economics environment, it’s more important than ever to prepare our children for success. They may be the first generation that will be financially worse off than their parents. But arts can help. According to recent research, arts-engaged students were more likely than their peers to attend and succeed in college, obtain employment, and ultimately give back to their communities.
Thanks to MyRegistry.com, with a few clicks, we can help prepare our inner-city children for a brighter future!
