National Corporate Theatre Fund Launches Initiative to Increase Funding for Arts Education

« Back

May 11, 2012

Last month the National Corporate Theatre Fund (NCTF) launched its "Impact Creativity" campaign - a $5 million fundraising effort to support theatre education programs in 19 American cities impacting more than 500,000 youth. The campaign launched with a $200,000 gift from Ernst & Young LLP and its partners and principals. Bruce Whitacre, Executive Director of NCTF made the following remarks:

"Impact Creativity was launched in response to the alarming decline in funding for arts education and seeks to motivate corporations, foundations and individuals to help shape a more intelligent, diverse, confident and creative 21st century workforce by investing in arts and theatre education as essential learning. We know the powerful impact of theatre education on our youth which is why we have decided to step up to the plate and try to narrow the funding gap."
