The nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center is proud to have been named as a recipient of a generous grant from NorthPark Center at their NorthPark50: Fifty Years of Giving event held today. NorthPark continued their half-century of giving back to the community by contributing to fifty local charitable organizations on the day of their 50th anniversary. The nonprofits selected serve vital roles in North Texas and included several key arts groups.
The funds will go towards the Center’s Community Partners program, which expands arts access for people all over the region.
The Center presents some of the most important artistic works to be seen in North Texas, and believes that all people should experience these high-quality arts experiences. To that end, we purchase blocks of tickets and distribute them to nonprofits who utilize the arts to augment their services. The Center places no restrictions on the kinds of shows that community partners can take advantage of – even if they seek tickets to sellout shows, we find a way to accommodate them.
Our current Community Partners include The Family Place, Jonathan’s Place, Jubilee Park and Community Center, Lumin Education, Nexus Recovery Center, Ronald McDonald House, Vickery Meadow Youth Development Foundation, the Wilkinson Center, The Bridge, Uplift Peak Preparatory, Wesley-Rankin Community Center, The Resource Center, HopeKids, Dallas Morning News Charities, Dallas Youth Orchestra, Frisco Family Services and students from the Dallas Music Teachers Association.
The Center is able to add additional education groups like these, thanks to donations from the Donna Wilhelm Friendship Fund, community leaders like NorthPark Center and individual donors. If you would like to help more children and families access the arts, please consider contributing at our site.
