Change Your Neighbor's Life...

Supporting the arts has a dramatic impact on our community. When you support ArtsAltoona, you are cultivating change right in our backyard. The impact of art is amazing to see:

  • Students with high arts participation and low socioeconomic status have a 4 percent dropout rate—five times lower than their low socioeconomic status peers
  • Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are twice as likely to graduate college as their peers with no arts education.
  • Consistent access to arts programs reduced levels of depression and improvements in quality of life for people of all ages
  • 3/4 of people believe that the arts "help them understand other cultures better".
  • Art culture actively helps fund local businesses and provides financial security for communities through tourism, job security, and entertainment.

We want everyone to have the opportunity to unleash their creative side. With your support, we can change the lives of our neighbors.
