Do you remember the first time you felt you belonged? Whether it's at school, on a sports team, or in a drama club, a sense of belonging and inclusion is one of the most impactful feelings a kid can experience.
This Giving Tuesday we celebrate our alumni and share their stories of belonging at BBK: connecting to lifelong friends, developing confidence and discovering talents within, and ultimately, how BBK helped shape their dreams.
We serve over 1600 students per year from all five boroughs, and the vast majority of our students come from under-resourced communities. Last year, 93% of our students were able to participate in our classes completely free of cost, and we were able to offer that critical feeling of belonging and community to so many students who would not have otherwise had access.
However, like many arts programs, due to budget cuts it has been a huge struggle to obtain funding in order to maintain our programs. When you donate, you help us maintain our accessible programs and move closer to our goal of offering programs to over 20 school partners for FREE, regardless of outside funding. All of the proceeds will offer critical support to help us sustain our programs.
Together, we can raise our goal of $10,000 this Giving Tuesday! Your support will sustain our programs for the rest of this year, and will help ensure that new students will have the opportunity to join the amazing Broadway Bound Kids family in the future.
Thank you for helping us make BBK a place for ALL students to belong and be heard.
