Intriguing Approach to Bringing Arts to Kids

image

As our followers know, Arts to Grow’s mission is to make our arts program available to as many kids as possible.  The key to achieving this mission is two-fold.  First, we raise funds to grow our programs.  To this end, we’d like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who made a year-end pledge.  Secondly, we ensure that our funds are used as effectively as possible.  This in turns allows us to bring arts to as many kids as possible.  Arts to Grow achieves this with the help of an extensive volunteer corp.  Volunteers give their professional expertise ranging from finance, technology, marketing, law, and more.  Everything that happens outside the classrooms is made possible by volunteers.  Collectively, volunteers have lent over 21,500 hours of professional work to support Arts to Grow’s mission.

Now, while our innovative approach is not new news to our friends and supporters, it has garnered national attention through ArtsFwd.  Arts to Grow was recognized in the “Business Unusual” Contest, and received an honorable mention for Intriguing Approaches.  We’re excited about the recognition!  At the same time, we had long known that we have been doing something right each time we see that smile on our kids’ faces.  We look forward to continue to grow our programs with the help of our volunteers, and see more smiles on more kids.  

Thank you to all our volunteers.  If your New Year resolution is to get more involved with the local community, consider volunteering with Arts to Grow.  Join us in making a difference in our kids lives!
