Story Theater received a Target Stores Arts & Culture in Schools Grant
Our Target grant financed 47% of our school tour. Story Theater performed for 2696 elementary students, with an average of 90.40% economically disadvantaged population.
Highly engaging, Story Theater teaches concrete skills for Story Creation, actively inspires literacy, and works in conjunction with any educational theme for deeper understanding.
We have finished our tour, If you would still like a school show, our rates are very reasonable.
The grant is part of Target’s ongoing efforts to build strong, safe and healthy communities across the country. These efforts include Target’s long history of giving 5 percent of its profit to communities, which today equals more than $4 million every week. As part of this commitment, Target is on track to give $1 billion for education by the end of 2015 to help kids learn, schools teach and parents and caring adults engage.
“At Target, we are committed to serving local communities where we do business,” said Laysha Ward, President, Community Relations, Target. “That’s why we are proud to partner with Story Theater as we work to strengthen communities and enrich the lives of our guests and team members.”
