Giving to the National Center for Arts & Technology:

Communities around the world face significant challenges. High rates of unemployment, low graduation rates, inequities in education, and persistent poverty have left many individuals feeling disenfranchised and hopeless. For these individuals, the pursuit of a better life through education or hard work seems unattainable.

With a tax-deductible donation to the National Center for Arts & Technology (NCAT), you will help NCAT replicate the Manchester Bidwell Education Model in communities throughout the world – a model that creates real avenues out of poverty and promotes hope among those who need it the most. Our model ensures that every new Center for Arts & Technology possesses the same high quality standards: innovative, youth arts education and adult career training programs taught by professional teaching artists and specialized experts delivered within a world-class facility filled with light, art and a culture of respect and hope. Already replicated in 8 cities with many more in planning, our model is a proven, effective strategy to improve academic achievement, high school graduation rates, and equip adults to take advantage of life-changing employment opportunities.

Your investment will not only be critical to ensuring that NCAT expands its growing global network of Centers for Arts & Technology, but it will also allow you to become part of a broader movement that effectively addresses some of society’s greatest challenges and improves the lives of individuals who need it the most.
