Double Your Impact with a Matching Gift

Many companies provide matching support for charitable gifts made by their employees. Check with your Human Resources Office to see if your company has a program and what the process is!

A match is an easy way to maximize the impact of your gift, and may double both your gift and the children reached.

Support Us in a Charity Campaign

If you participate in a giving program at work, ask if you can add Arts for Learning Connecticut as a beneficiary of your support.

If you have a facebook account, you can create a simple online fundraiser and invite your friends to contribute. Many people use their birthday, a holiday or some other life event as an occasion to do this.
