96,000 Campaign for Arts Education

WHAT ARE THE 96,000 REASONS?
We believe financially supporting arts education is a low-cost, high-return investment in community. Contributors not only help educate the next generation of artists and audiences – they help teach creative thinking skills to the future innovators and leaders of our world.

WHO ARE THE 96,000 REASONS?
Students. Community members. Artists. Business people. And more….Our organization has gone from piloting classes at a single elementary school, to running visual and performing arts programs, before, during, and after school, at seventy-five schools in twelve Bay Area school districts, including: Campbell, Evergreen, Moreland, San Jose Unified, Santa Clara Unified, Saratoga, Sunnyvale, Los Altos, Cambrian, Union, Fremont, and Ravenswood.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONTRIBUTE?
Starting Arts actively solicits and receives services and operating funds from individuals, corporations, foundations and government agencies. Monies are primarily spent on artist salaries, teaching supplies and technical support. We are prepared to accept a variety of contributions, i.e. cash, stock, capital goods and/or services. All donations are tax-deductible. See our Wish List.
