ABOUT OUR YOUTH EDUCATION PROGRAM
We’ve been blessed to receive a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts over the past 7 years and have provided schools, youth organizations, and adults with disabilities glass art programming at little to no cost to the participants.
Through the lifespan of our Youth Education Program, SGS has served over 5,500 students from 45 different groups. The populations we serve primarily consist of students from from low-income households and of minority backgrounds.
Sonoran Glass School was recently notified that we will not be receiving another grant from the NEA for our Youth Education Program due to government cuts to arts funding. The loss of this grant, at $25,000 and 80% of the program’s revenue, is devastating for our Youth Education Program.
THE EXCITING NEWS!
What does this mean for our current campaign? It means that your donation will be doubled dollar for dollar. And making our new goal of $15,000 means the Youth Education Program would be funded to the tune of $30,000.
