Creative Connections knows that, as the world becomes increasingly interconnected, so too must learning. Cultural literacy is an essential element of every child’s education. Your support enables students to become world citizens who are prepared to learn, live, work and thrive in a 21st Century global economy.

Your contribution makes a difference

Creative Connections is a small organization but we do mighty things. We partner with classrooms in the US and 25 countries across six continents, engaging over 10,000 students each year. Donor support makes this kind of ambitious global learning possible. Every contribution, every individual, matters – just as every student, in every classroom, matters and deserves to learn and engage in the world.

How your investment matters

Creative Connections is committed to keeping our programs affordable for schools. We don’t want cost to be an obstacle for students to build their cultural literacy. Your investment helps to deliver essential, multi-month, interactive and inter-disciplinary learning experiences that make a lasting educational impact.

Your tax-deductible gift supports:

  • Program underwriting for underserved classrooms and schools
  • Program curricula and evaluation development
  • Teacher training and capacity building to reach even more students

Our Annual Fund

Our Annual Fund provides:

  • Development of curriculum materials, teacher resources and communications technology
  • Teacher training sessions in the USA and overseas led by Creative Connections’ professional staff
  • Training and support of overseas field coordinators in many of our partner countries
  • Participation by overseas partner classes from underdeveloped and disadvantaged nations and schools

Our Underwriting Fund

Our UNDERWRITING FUND enables us to bring ArtLink exchanges and workshops to USA classrooms that would not otherwise be able to participate.  The opportunity to exchange art and dialogue with peers from another country is especially meaningful and empowering for vulnerable and underserved students whose opportunities to experience life and culture outside their immediate neighborhood are limited.  We endeavor, through underwriting, to bring ArtLink to as many students as possible.

Ways to give
