Thanks to the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation, we reached our goal with their dollar-for-dollar match in the final phase!
SPARC’s first capital campaign, which began in 2008 with the move into the SPARC Center, has successfully reached its goal of $6.0 million!
Your support has made these dreams a reality:
- Provide a bright, spacious environment for exceptional performing arts training and outreach programs with expanded instructional space, including two new educational studios and eight private instruction rooms, tripling the number of students we can serve on campus.
- Ensure full accessibility to all spaces for students and guests with disabilities.
- Protect the safety of our students with upgraded exterior drop-off and pick-up locations.
- Increase office capacity to bring over 60 adjunct faculty and staff together for creative workspace, greater efficiency and a healthier work environment.
- Establish the general endowment fund to support new performing arts education initiatives and ensure that no child is denied the opportunity for a SPARC experience because of an inability to afford tuition.

SPARC has surpassed its goal of $6.0 million, and there’s still more to do. Please join us!
Our Goal: $6.0 Million
WE’RE ROLLING OUT THE RED CARPET!
Become a permanent part of SPARC’s history.
The front walk at the newly expanded entrance to the SPARC Center welcomes students, families, and guests to a beautifully renovated space. The entry to the bright, spacious environment is home to exceptional performing arts training and outreach programs with expanded instructional space, including new educational studios, private instruction rooms, and the Sara Belle November Educational Theater.
The new entrance is fully accessible for students and guests with disabilities.
The facade of the SPARC Center is equally as inviting, providing families a welcoming, freshly landscaped area to keep company during students’ classes or intermission during performances.
By engraving a message on a brick or paving stone at the SPARC Center, you will become a permanent part of SPARC’s history. At the same time, you will be providing valuable support for our efforts to create a world-class performing arts education facility for generations to come.

“Our son always loves his SPARC classes and productions, but this one truly stood out in both his experience and the cast’s performance. His years of experience with SPARC have really influenced who he is today – He now has the confidence to take risks and the ability to appreciate the talents of those who surround him.”SPARC Parent
