Can you lend a hand today?

A generous donor recently struck a deal with us: If you make a donation in the next 24 hours, she’ll match every dollar we receive up to $1,000.

Can you help us meet our $1,000 goal with a gift of $5, $15, $25, or more?

Public schools and community programs in California can’t seem to catch a break. Sustained and severe budget cuts have left restricted access to arts education for our youth.

Performing Arts Workshop steps in by providing a spectrum of arts classes—theatre, poetry, capoeira, and more—that develop a child’s critical thinking and problem solving skills, and increase engagement in school and learning.

Our fiscal year goal is $50k by June 30th, and we’re almost there.  If just 40 people give $25 each, we can easily meet our goal within one day.

Please, take a moment to lend a hand to at-risk youth in our community.  Right now, your donation will go twice as far:

Funding for programs like ours continues to be challenging to secure, and that’s why every little bit helps.  Really, every little bit helps.  Please give what you can today.
