Imagine how good it feels to make a donation that positively impacts a child’s life. The Alliance for the Arts
is excited to provide you with the opportunity to experience that elation as a sponsor of our 2023 Summer
Arts Camp. It’s no secret that young people in SWFL have endured the one-two punch of COVID and
Hurricane Ian, contributing to their increased poverty, anxiety, depression and a lack of social engagement.
Our Summer Arts Camp provides students with the ability to express their creativity, boost their confidence
and strengthen their interpersonal skills. This year’s applications confirm that the importance of our students
attending camp has increased as dramatically as their need for financial assistance in order to attend. That is
why our goal is to raise $15,000 to ensure no camper is turned away because of financial need.    

Here are a few examples of what parents shared about the importance of their child receiving a scholarship for
Summer Arts Camp:  
Art is therapy for my children!  

My child has suffered from being bullied. They asked to attend art camp because it is a place they can be
themselves and show off their creativity.  

As a result of the devastation our family endured from the hurricane, our child has been suffering from depression.
She uses art to soothe herself. The opportunity to be  immersed in art with other children will boost her mentally,
emotionally, and artistically.  

Sponsors can gift a scholarship, purchase sketchbooks or other supplies, or donate to the Lydia A. Black Scholarship
fund, which is endowed to provide youth scholarships in perpetuity.

With Gratitude,
