$9,806 of $15,000 target raised during Canada Helps Campaign!
Theatre Alberta’s Canada Helps donation campaign raised $9,800 towards the recovery of Artstrek 2016 scholarship funds awarded to this summer’s students. While the program continues to be generously supported by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and we work closely with our host, Red Deer College, Artstrek’s costs continue to rise.
As it is, a student paying the full registration fee is only covering about half of the actual cost of their week-long intensive, but even that cost is prohibitive to many Albertans. Theatre Alberta disbursed $15,000 in July to 40 very deserving Artstrek students and we ask for your support in recouping the remaining $5,000.
Donations can still be made through our general Charity page on Canada Helps, our website, or by contacting the office at 780-422-8162!
We extend our sincerest gratitude to the very generous donors who have already contributed to our Scholarship Fund! To view the campaign, and a list of donors, please click here.
