We hope you will consider supporting the School of the Arts as we move forward with the many new projects and programs we are working on as we endeavor to increase the quality and stature of the arts on campus. Providing a quality arts education for our students is our primary mission, and recently through a generous contribution, we have established a School of the Arts General Scholarship Fund, available to outstanding students enrolled in any arts discipline. If you are a fan of the arts, this is a great way to help arts students complete their studies.
Another way you can support the arts is through our Keys for Notes program, an initiative in which our University will purchase 38 new Steinway pianos and be officially designated as an All-Steinway School. Gaining such favored status will assist us in attracting the most talented students, not to mention outstanding faculty as well. Funding opportunities range from the purchase of a single key ($1,000) to giving levels that include a personal tour of the Steinway Piano factory in New York City.
As a theatre lover, you may have always wanted to produce a play, and our Theatre Angel program may just fit the bill for you. A variety of funding levels from "make-up angel" to "executive producer" exist to help the Department of Theatre and Dance present the outstanding stage productions we enjoy each season.
The Department of Art has several ongoing needs for supporting students and their art education. The department maintains a fund to help students purchase the required class supplies because of the dramatic increase in costs. Assistance with funding equipment upgrades provides another opportunity to directly help our students. Because the arts studios are used almost 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all the equipment gets more than its fair share of wear and tear.
If you would like to learn more about these and other ways you can support the arts on campus and in our community, please contact our director of development, Stuart Golder, at (775) 784-1222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
