Create Arts Opportunities for kids in Bethel schools

We are kicking off a week-long digital giving campaign through February 10th to support arts education in Eugene’s Bethel School District!

Many generous donors and partners have already stepped up to help us reach almost 75% of our goal, but we need your support to raise $3,000 this week, ensuring that all 2,700 Bethel elementary students have the opportunity to experience the arts in school.

Bethel School District, Lane County’s third-largest district, is home to over 5,600 students including 2,700 Bethel elementary school students. More than half of students in the district are eligible for free and reduced lunch and there are few arts programs available in the school and community.

Join us in creating arts opportunities for every K-5 Bethel student!

Please designate “Bethel” in the memo line of your donation.

Lane Arts Council’s arts education programs provide a diversity of high-quality arts programming. Professional teaching artists engage young people in meaningful arts experiences that align with academic learning objectives. Students engage with their learning in a unique way, develop creative problem solving and cultural awareness, and build their confidence and self-worth.
