Arts plus your donation.

At Arts+, we know the effects of an arts education extend far beyond paint canvases and piano recitals. Arts education can transform lives, helping students tap into their artistic potential, plus develop the lifelong skills they need to succeed in other arenas of life, including critical thinking, problem solving, and perseverance. Of the 4,500 students we reach each year, roughly half receive their arts education for free or at a reduced rate.

When you donate to Arts+, you make it possible for students of all backgrounds to access outstanding arts education. Your donation adds up to so much more.
