A Community of Giving

The difference between those who change the world and those who don’t is that those who do believe they can. Act One was founded on this belief. We’re changing worldviews by providing artistic experiences for students in Title 1 schools throughout Arizona – 199,000 since our first field trip in 2011.

Act One’s impact is impressive for a young nonprofit. Act One’s ability to build a solid foundation and experience strong growth has been made possible by many of Arizona’s foundations, corporations and philanthropists. The future of Act One belongs to our community of donors who value the arts in education and invest in the expansion of our field trip program.
