ANNUAL FUND

A Message from our Executive Director

It’s a proven fact that schools with the highest graduation rates are those that offer students the most access to arts education. But even though many kids live near big cities, just minutes away from centers of culture and power and prestige, many of them feel as if these resources are really miles away, very far beyond their reach.  In fact, many of them are simply  unaware that they exist at all.

Did you know that every year, South Shore Arts reaches over 30,000 children and youth—many of them with little or no access to the arts—through its everykid program? Today we ask you to consider a contribution of $250, $125 or $50, a gift that will be matched dollar-for-dollar, ensuring the everykid program continues to grow and make a difference for the children and families of our region.

The South Shore Arts everykid program is always developing new ideas for bringing the arts to the economically, academically and socially disadvantaged children and families in our communities who need them the most. Study after study find that arts programs, such as the everykid program, motivate children to learn and assist in improving performance in core academic subjects such as math and reading.

Thank you in advance for your continuing commitment to the arts. To make a gift, please call me today at 219/836-1839, ext. 102.

Sincerely,

John M. Cain
Executive Director

P.S. Please give today. There are thousands of children we don't reach yet and your generosity will help South Shore Arts reach them. Thank you!
