Donate to Act One

Arts are the great equalizer. Act One was founded to provide underserved Arizona children with access to arts experiences and arts education. We provide arts experiences because we know that the arts have the power to transform and help people be more creative, imaginative, compassionate, tolerant, and connected to their community. Providing access to the arts is not about today. It is about the future. All gifts are tax-deductible.
