Empower All Children Through Art

Invest in KID smART’s most ambitious year to date as we work with over 14 public schools—all of which have uniquely navigated and been affected by the pandemic. This year, KID smART is increasing its focus on literacy and social-emotional learning in its arts-integrated instruction to address the losses our students have experienced. To improve post-pandemic schooling for our students, we recognize the increased need for academic and social-emotional learning that is both equitable and culturally responsive. By helping us provide students and educators with learning experiences that meet the whole child’s needs, we can redefine how we measure student success. 

In the past year, more than 11,000 children received high-quality arts-integrated instruction through KID smART. Thanks to you, we provided them—and 1,246 educators—with joyful learning and programming that positively impacts school success. Your generosity is transforming education for thousands of bright and talented children from under-resourced communities.
