How You Can Help a Child Shine

Sponsor a Child

We appreciate any donation. A donation of $10 or more is greatly appreciated by a child in your community. For a $40.00 donation you can give a child the opportunity to take lessons for one month in the genre of their choice. 

A $650 donation can provide a child with the opportunity to take 10 months worth of lessons and be a part of their studios recital, and the Foundation's  Scholarship Showcase. This would also include recital costume cost.
