The people who make our work possible.

Arts for Learning Connecticut’s supporters

Without the support of hundreds of individuals, foundations, corporations, municipalities, state and federal agencies, and other civic institutions, the work we do at Arts for Learning Connecticut would not be possible. Thanks to the contributions of these community leaders, we are able to provide:

  • Creative, cultural, inspired performances
  • In-class arts workshops
  • Extended arts-integrated residencies
  • Professional Development for educators and administrators
  • Community-based public events for families
  • Higher Order Thinking Schools: whole-school change

Do you want to join this team of supporters…

and help provide arts learning for all Connecticut students?

Your tax-deductible contribution can make a difference in our work—and in the lives of the 100,000+ students we serve every year.

Thank you to our supporters from last year!
