Spark a Child’s Imagination

SPARKS Monthly Giving Club

Why Give Monthly?

Your monthly gift to Act One sparks the imaginations of children on field trip experiences throughout the school year.  Act One field trips unite the work of educators and artists to produce sparks – those “aha” moments of learning and inspiration. Sparks may occur at any point in the field trip experience – in the classroom, on the bus to the city, at a new venue and during the performance or tour. Sparks often give rise to an artistic passion, career possibility, greater tolerance or critical thought process. Month after month, you ignite sparks that inspire children for life!

Multiply Your Impact with Monthly Giving

Your gift of $10 sends a child on an Act One field trip. The simple act of making your gift monthly sends 12 children to the arts in a year! Increase your monthly gift to $15, and you’ll pay for an entire classroom, while $45 per month will fill a school bus.

Quotation Mark

“That child [on an Act One field trip] sitting in the audience, experiencing something for the first time. Imagine what’s happening. They see a color, they see a movement, they hear a note. They hear a story that is new to them. That opens them up. That pushes at their imagination. That flexes that muscle of openness. It’s a muscle that they can nurture their whole lives.”

— Dr. Steven Tepper, Dean, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, ASU
