Tomorrow, May 17, from midnight to midnight is an important day for us. And we humbly ask for your help. 

We invite you to be involved in our mission of supporting artists who serve community needs!  You can support culture AND help to meet critical needs in our community.

​The Great Give is important to us because your dollar will go further on May 17. Each donation made during the 24-hour period will be amplified by bonus pool dollars and hourly prizes!

Your donation will support programs that:
  • Help Dancers to Feed the Hungry
  • Activate Community Responsible Arts Students
  • Employ the Arts to Support Worthy Causes
  • Use the Arts to Heal the Elderly & Engage At-Risk Youth

If you plan to give to Artists for a Cause at all this year,
we hope you will consider...

Our Student Stars are Rising

Anthony 2


We have been fortunate enough to be able to award scholarships to student artists in our network. Those scholarships are paying off. Our students are excelling. In fact, for many of them, this is their senior year and as they graduate, they have chosen majors in performing arts! Bravo to:

 
  • Tony Capizzi (pictured above) who will attend Stetson University for Vocal Performance
  • Charlotte Kreibich who is attending University of Central Florida for Music Education
  • Chloe Leadabrand who will be studying theatre at Florida State University
  • Megan Savage who is going to Stetson on a full ride to study cello

Therapeutic Arts Update

A Note From Jackie:

"A great day at grand Oaks! I arrived and only one person was awake at 2:00 p.m. when I was setting up. By the time I left there were 12 or 13 memory care residents, additional family and friends, and three or four staff enjoying themselves and the music. A mixture of classical, to go with sing-along, and the Great American songbook - as well as a lot of melodies from around the world.

When I exited, the group of people who were taking painting lessons on the third Wednesday of every month, were just finishing up an "out of the box session." When they heard the live music - which had never happened before - the teacher chose to ask for something new. Instead of the usual simple watercolor, the instructor asked them to paint reflections of the music. It was very cool to see all these different interpretations of a jazz trio, with the big stand-up bass instead of a cello." ~ Jackie Robbins

And to top this all off - the watercolor class was taught by our own Val Lally scheduled through Artists for a Cause!

Artists for a Cause supports artists who serve community needs. 
logo

Artists for a Cause is a national nonprofit organization that supports artists who serve community needs. Some programs help artists and charities to get the most out of their collaboration, while most produce results directly, by feeding the poor, healing the sick, or solving other problems through unique artistic solutions. Additionally, we never ask artist professionals in a struggling industry to donate or give away their livelihood.  No program is merely about art for arts’ sake –
Artists for a Cause is about the arts as a solution.
