I want to support SPARC!    Give Now

Annual gifts are the pillar of our organization. Your gift provides distinctive performing arts education, helps provide financial aid, and supports outreach programs to young people throughout our community.

With the start of the 2017-2018 fiscal year, SPARC is embarking on a milestone Annual Giving Campaign with a goal of $2 million, the largest in SPARC’s history. Raised funds will sustain outreach programs such as our STAGES program in under-served area elementary schools, NEW VOICES for the THEATER play-writing residency for high school playwrights, the inclusive LIVE ART program, as well as student scholarships and financial aid.
