As we collectively face new challenges and new opportunities in our national arena, we are reminded that we have a unique opportunity to come together as a society and make the world a better place for all. We at TAP have been consistently approaching our work with children through the power of the arts and education to do just that. Organizations like TAP need you now more than ever. There are many ways you can make a difference, even with a little time or a little money. Please keep reading.
When you think back to your childhood, what do you remember from 4th grade? If you are like most people, you remember the special things: field trips, guests in the classroom, school plays and assemblies. Theatre Action Project is that special and memorable experience for thousands of young people every year. Years after visiting schools, kids see our incredible teaching artists in grocery stores and at the pool and tell them they still remember the funny songs, the characters and the role-play activities that helped them learn how to stop bullying or how to get along with friends or to stand up against injustice. What we do sticks with kids. It is important work and fills a critical need in the community.
Schools and families are hungry for our unique and engaging plays and classes that successfully address some of the toughest issues young people face today: bullying, conflict, prejudices, dating violence, and low self-esteem. People want our theatre and art-based programs in their communities because they know they make an impact, they are fun, and through them young people get a desperately needed opportunity to express themselves. Our programs give kids the skills and confidence they need to succeed. And, we always leave the kids smiling and wanting to learn even more.
Yet, funding constraints on schools leave them with little to no funds for special and important programs like Theatre Action Project. We turn away schools every single day because there simply isn’t enough funding to fill the demand.
Can you please join us to play your part in the action and help us to use the magic and joy of theatre and the creative arts to educate even more young people?
You can help in a few different ways:
Make a tax-deductible donation. Even $10 will help.
If each of you donate $10, we will have enough money to meet our goal for the year and can provide over 10,000 hours of programs to area schools.
Don’t you want to say you helped make that happen?
Buy us something on our Wish List.
The more you buy for us, the more money we can save from our supply budget to help subsidize our school programs.
Volunteer your time to help us!
We value our incredible team of volunteers who work alongside our staff and teaching artists to help improve the lives of young people every day.
Be one of them.
And, if you work for a business, please inquire to see if they have matching programs for either your gift or your time.
Thank you and please consider making even a small donation today. You will be helping to make something really special happen in an area school.
