In-Kind Donations

With bustling theater, visual art, choral and dance programs, we are always purchasing and in need of various materials for classes and performances. Providing an in-kind donation of materials in lieu of or along side a financial donation goes a long way. Additionally, at some of our largest special events, we solicit auction items to bring in additional funds for our programs. Donating in-kind items is another way to support our events, bringing our community together and strengthening bonds between our families. We are currently surveying our teachers for a wish list of items and will include a link here when it is completed.
