Seats 4 Kids
Seats 4 Kids is a scholarship fund established by Broadway Grand Rapids to provide free tickets to local youth who could not otherwise afford to attend a performing arts event. Experiencing the performing arts is about much more than being entertained. The arts have the power to teach, inspire, unify, and truly transform individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Time and time again, research shows that young people who are engaged in the arts do better in school and are more involved in their communities. They also demonstrate higher academic performance including increased standardized test scores and lower drop-out rates than those students not involved in the arts. Contributions from generous individuals like you allow us to provide tickets to economically–disadvantaged children through local community service organizations and Title 1 schools that have been pre-approved by Broadway Grand Rapids. Your tax-deductible contribution to Seats 4 Kids scholarship fund is for the sole purpose of purchasing tickets for qualified youth.
Contributions of $100 or more to the Seats 4 Kids scholarship fund will be acknowledged in Broadway Grand Rapids’ programs for the season in which your tax-deductible donation occurs. More importantly, you’ll receive the benefit of knowing that your generosity has helped inspire children through the transformative power of the performing arts.
If you have any questions or wish to know more about supporting Broadway Grand Rapids’ community engagement initiatives, please contact Broadway Grand Rapids Development at 616–235–6285.
