Support arts education programs that allow young people to shine!

Help us bring the arts to more children throughout Chicago and show those children that when they create, they are powerful.

During our fiscal year 2017 (September 1, 2016 through August 31, 2017), we have reached approximately 80,000 young people through innovative arts programs that include artist residencies, touring performances, media arts programs at Street-Level Youth Media, and more.

Help us dig deeper into the power of the arts during the 2017-18 school year and fiscal year! We cannot do this without your support! Take action now. Your generous donation allows local students to experience unforgettable teaching and touring artist programs.

Many of the children and teenagers who participate in Urban Gateways arts education programs face adversity every day. For some of these students, art is their only escape. While Chicago holds an enormous amount of artistic and cultural wealth, access to these resources remains disproportionately low in many parts of the city. Particularly in under-resourced neighborhoods with deep-rooted challenges attributed to poverty, gang activity, and under-performing schools, Urban Gateways strives to create alternative and positive experiences as a means to a brighter future for children and their communities.
