Youth Art Scholarship Fact Sheet

Two years ago, on the 20th Anniversary of our television show, It’s All About Arts, we had a gala event. The event was a celebration as well as a kick off for our Youth Scholarship Program. We had many generous sponsors. After the event we were able to offer three - $500 scholarships to local youth. Our target is middle and high school kids. The money can be used for performing arts (dance or music) or art classes. Recently we held a fundraiser at the Rozzie Theatre in partnership with CSz Boston Comedy and will be giving out four scholarships in the coming months. We endeavor to hold fundraisers to be able to give out yearly scholarships. The scholarships are managed through the Roslindale Arts Alliance, with fiscal nonprofit status via Community Arts Advocates*.

Our next fundraiser will be "Art in the Garden" at MIT Endicott House in Dedham on Sunday September 8, 2019. Details and to buy tickets
