Provide Opportunity for our Youth



Why Support CPAF?

Coastal Performing Arts Foundation gives young performing artists the chance to explore their passions and follow their dreams by offering rigorous, professional-quality training and performance experiences.  Our Company members tell us that they leave CCYB, CYT and Beyond Boundaries programs with more confidence, stronger empathy, a greater sense of responsibility and commitment, and a deeper capacity to imagine, create, and perform.  They have learned what it means to be part of a family of performers, to focus, to communicate with, and to support one another, to believe in their ability to make a difference, and to energetically participate in an artistic and collaborative process. Our youth need these qualities, now more than ever.

In the current economic climate, opportunities for young artists to develop these strengths are diminishing. As financial and educational support for the performing arts dwindles, CPAF is committed to making sure that this doesn’t happen in our community, because our young people are not only the next generation of artists, but are the next generation of leaders in their community.

Research shows the significant role that art plays in preparing young people for success, both in school and in life. Arts-involved students watch fewer hours of TV, participate in more community service and report less boredom in school. Extensive and deep involvement in the arts is also a predictor of students’ later academic achievement and community involvement.  Your support makes a difference in the lives of so many young artists as well as our community. Please share the word about our organization and our upcoming productions – invite a friend or two to join you – and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, ideas, or want to know more about how you can be involved.

We would not be able to accomplish so much without the generosity of donors like you. Corporate and individual support help underwrite the over 50% cost of our programs not covered by ticket sales. Your support helps us provide exceptional quality theater performing opportunities for youth. Donations help us keep ticket prices affordable, offer scholarships and benefit performances, and create sets and costumes that make the stories come alive. We are seeking additional sponsors as well as program advertisers to support our upcoming productions. If you know someone who might be interested in helping, please let us know!
