Our programs are made possible thanks to supporters like you. Through your tax-deductible donation, you are setting the stage for communities to thrive through collaboration and creative cultural efforts.

At every giving level, your investment in Building for the Arts will bring meaningful arts initiatives to New York and cities across the country through our signature programs – Music and the Brain and Theatre Row:

$6,000 can sponsor a Title I school’s Music and the Brain lab – complete with keyboards, engaging learning tools, and a teacher-endorsed curriculum – that will be used by thousands of children over multiple years.

$2,500 can give innovative artists a creative home at Theatre Row through subsidies to nonprofit Off-Broadway productions.

$1,000 can train public school music teachers at a two-day Music and the Brain workshop, providing them with a lasting framework for interactive music literacy instruction.

$500 can fuel Theatre Row’s growth as a model of strategic neighborhood development and a beacon for the arts, serving more than 165,000 patrons annually.

$150 can add a keyboard to a Music and the Brain classroom that dozens of children will use each year, enhancing the fundamental skills they need to succeed in school, the workplace, and in life.

$25 can help transform a community, using our arts initiatives as a catalyst for change.
