Open the Door to the World’s Arts!

Your tax-deductible donation enables us to create opportunities for audiences young and old to learn about cultures from around the globe through the traditional performing arts. This includes:

  • World Music in the Schools, a unique, nationally recognized program that enriches the lives of children throughout the San Diego area by bringing hands-on world music and dance to their schools,
  • Refugee Songs and Stories, presenting the performing arts of San Diego refugee communities to broader audiences to encourage cross-cultural understanding.
  • Access the Arts for Seniors, transporting music and arts into affordable housing facilities for seniors who face limitations impeding their access to the arts.

Our online donations are processed through PayPal, so we will not have access to any of your sensitive financial information. You do not, however, need a PayPal account to make a donation.
