Invest in the Arts in Arkansas

Make a Difference Today

Thea’s statewide efforts would not be possible without our generous donors who prioritize arts education and creative learning in Arkansas. Eighty percent of funds raised go directly to our three impactful programs- giving our donors the comfort of knowing their contribution truly makes a difference in furthering our mission in the classroom.

Thea Foundation programs serve all communities in Arkansas through the power of the arts with dedication to inclusivity, collaboration and with the recognition that art, culture and creativity are core to developing the potential of our youth. On average, the schools we serve are classified as 98% free/reduced lunch and low income populations.

Thanks to our generous friends, Thea Foundation currently impacts 16% of Arkansas students with our programing, but we can do so much more. We are a 501(c)3 organization that relies solely on community support through private donations and grant funding to operate.

Your support of Thea Foundation will ensure students receive critical creative supplies and materials that their schools have little-to-no-budget for through Thea’s Art Closet, that teachers receive relevant professional development in the arts so that they can continue to enrich their curriculum with new media and capital investments through our Arts Reconstruction program and that high school seniors can receive up to $20,000 in scholarship funding to support higher education through Thea’s scholarship competition.

Make an impact by donating today.
