CFC Cause of the Week: Arts & Culture

The arts are a pathway into the soul of a society. Whether through painting, music, film, writing, or some other form of expression, the arts are a vessel for celebrating cultures, creativity, and imagination. They are a glimpse into history, a reflection of our present, and a hope for the future. 

Many children in the United States and around the globe do not have the resources to experience the arts and culture. They do not have access to necessities that ensure a successful arts program – musical instruments, art supplies, history books, and more. And many communities face challenges to preserving their culture and traditions.

Humanities programs are a way to protect and connect to the past, as well as an investment in the future. These important programs offer unique ways to pass on the history of our societies and educate and rehabilitate individuals and communities. Many CFC charities support the arts and culture through various funding initiatives. No matter what you are passionate about – there are many ways to show your love for the arts and culture through CFC charities.

Here’s how you can make an impact:

  • $55 supplies four children in a developing country with music books and stands.
  • $100 preserves 1,000 historic documents, making them available digitally to people worldwide.
  • $150 presents an integrated arts performance for 100 children, inspiring them to love learning.
