Support the Future of Performing Arts.
Through the generous support of our contributors during the 2012-13 fiscal year, Ruth Eckerd Hall provided performing arts education for more than 51,880 students. We need your help to fulfill our mission to provide life-long learning experiences, exploration, discovery and mastery of the performing arts in our community. Please consider a gift to support:
This series provides low-cost, live performances from around the world here on one of our stages. This is often the introduction to younger students of live theater, classical music and adaptations of classic literature to young students. More than 6,900 students attended in 2012-13. Contributors are needed to underwrite ticket and transportation subsidies for schools lacking the funds to attend.
Exploratory and Preparatory Classes, Private Lessons and Scholarships
Enrollment in a performing arts course is not only an adventure for the participant but is proven to build creativity, self-esteem and communication skills. Preparatory classes focus on professional development of the student pursuing a career in the arts. High school scholarships are awarded to assist with education costs at the university level. What better way to support our future community and our future artists than to sponsor a child in financial need with a tuition gift?
Gifts may be made in honor of a loved one or to celebrate a special occasion. Donations are tax deductible. For more information, please contact the development office at (727) 791-7060.
"With the unfortunate downturn of the economy and our income with it, we have not been able to continue during the year with Meghan's studies at the Institute, but with tuition assistance available...our daughter now eagerly awaits summer so she can attend her home away from home. Thank you so much....It has enriched her life beyond measure." - Meghan's mom
