Great Artists Come From Great Arts Programs

But performing arts programs are expensive! 

It can be overwhelming for our schools to mount performances with all of the costs involved. 

Every Donation Makes a Difference 


SPARC is a community of parents, industry professionals, educators and performing arts enthusiasts. We know the value of an arts education but also understand the limitations of a public school budget. Our goal is to bridge the gap in funding to support the hopes and dreams of our performing arts students. 


Your donation supports:

  • Theater production expenses like royalties, lights, sets and costumes at all Summit Public Schools.

  • Competition expenses for both Speech & Debate and Step Dance teams.

  • Educational and training workshops led by professional singers, actors, dancers and speakers.
