Adopt a School Program

Adopt-A-School gives individuals and companies the opportunity to sponsor a classroom of local students to attend the Philadelphia Children's Festival. Your sponsorship helps provide lively arts education programs to the children of our greater Philadelphia community.

The Annenberg Center believes that all children, regardless of their ability to pay, should have opportunities to experience high quality performing arts programs. Nearly half of the school students who attend our children's programs could not do so without the deep discounts that Adopt-A-School makes possible. Adopt-A-School sponsorships begin at $1,000. For more information or to become a sponsor, please contact the Development Department at 215. 898.6754.
