We strive to enrich local communities by connecting artists directly with their audiences. In order to continue bringing arts programming to under-served populations we must raise over $200,000 each year, beyond the funds received from government sources. With your help we can reach that goal. You can support the arts in communities all around DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia by making a pledge to Class Acts Arts today.
Join the Cause
Class Acts Arts offers two opportunities for you to make your commitment to cultural arts programming in schools and community an annual expression.
For as little as $55 per year (less than one cup of coffee per month) you can become a member of ClassMates. Schools that have ten or more ClassMates members will receive a 10% discount on their next assembly program.
Gifts of $500 or more are recognized through the A+E Society giving community for their role in creating a legacy of support of arts in education and artists in the community.
If you share our belief that engagement that benefits a few should be an option for all. If you also see that those that could benefit the most from creative engagement all too often have the least access to these program. Then you have a voice with us and the opportunity to help Class Acts Arts do more.

You may give to where the need is greatest or can even choose to designate your donation to the following program areas:
The Bridge Fund
The Bridge Fund brings artist performances and workshops to economically disadvantaged schools, libraries, and senior centers. Launched with the support of a parent donor in 2008, the Bridge Fund provides a helping hand to communities that might not otherwise have adequate resources to access the arts programming they seek. The Fund subsidizes up to 1/3 of the program expense for disadvantaged schools and community centers. A donation, none too small, can help underprivileged children gain access to the arts education they need.
ProjectYouth ArtReach (PYA)
Promote positive youth development by providing youth offenders currently in detention, corrections, and probation settings with arts programs. Project Youth ArtReach enhances cognitive, linguistic and social skills. By exploring themes of respect and virtue from different cultures, these youth learn lessons in tolerance, problem solving and conflict resolution. This unique arts-in-corrections program introduces youth to a world beyond incarceration.
