Ways To Give


The arts are a necessity.

Arts education is a necessity in developing the full creative intelligence and academic achievement in our children. Children are limited to a short window of time – the elementary years – in which they are uniquely receptive to creative learning.  Research shows that creative learning enhances learning in other academic disciplines. It also produces original, creative thinkers who contribute to the workforce, our society, and to their own fulfillment and happiness in life.

FAME is a unique organization. No other regional arts organization duplicates FAME’s programming, reaching nearly 2 million students and adults in over 23 years of existence. Students are provided with a multicultural arts focus coupled with structured opportunities for preparation and follow-up in the classroom.

If you believe that all children deserve a creative education, then please contribute.  A donation of $200, $500, $1,000 or more, or whatever you can afford will help make FAME programs accessible to more children in more communities and make a tremendous difference in many lives. Together, we can help children discover their artistic, academic, and personal potential.
