Your support Opens the world to a child

Arts are the great equalizer. We believe that experiencing art together removes socioeconomic challenges that inhibit a deeper learning experience. Spending a few moments contemplating the subjects in a painting, thinking about their daily challenges and exploring the emotion presented expands your world view and makes you a more compassionate person. Imagine generations of students that never see the inside of a museum or witness the magic of a live performance.

Act One provides two programs that work hand-in-hand in opening the doors to the arts for thousands of Arizonans. Through the Act One Culture Pass program, more than 400,000 library cardholders annually have the opportunity to experience one of our stellar arts and culture partners free of charge. The Field Trip program provides more than 25,000 students from Title 1 schools opportunities to experience an artistic field trip. The Act One experience include transportation, admission and a teaching guide to help prepare students for the field trip. For more information about the Culture Pass click here. Act One Field Trips provides 25,000 students annually to an artistic experience during a school field trip.

Providing access to the arts is not about today. It is about the future.

All gifts are tax-deductible. Thank you for your support!


Field Trip Friends


By becoming a Field Trip Friend, your donation provides an arts experience for children in economically stressed Title 1 schools. A Title I school is defined by a minimum of 40% of the students on the free or reduced lunch program. Most of the schools we work with are a much higher percentage of students in the program.
