so many reasons to give

Your end-of-year gift will make an enormous impact in 2022.


November 30th kicks off our 2021 annual appeal throughout the month of december.
Please consider a gift to Rainey this holiday season to ensure kids in Cleveland, regardless of their family income, have access to high-quality, low-barrier arts programs.

During the holiday season, Rainey Institute reflects on another year of impact that has been made possible by you. Each year, holiday gifts driven by your generosity empower Rainey kids to spend another Saturday, another semester, or another summer exploring their gifts and talents within a nurturing community in their own neighborhood.

Why your gift is so important

your gift empowers

Whether a student has perfect pitch or no arts background at all, your gift gives a child the chance to explore their curiosity and talents in dance, drama, music, and/or visual arts. New offerings this year include Animated Arts, Saturday Ensemble, and our “triple-threat” program, STAGES.

your gift builds confidence

Through the arts, Rainey kids develop a positive self-perception, experience growth through creative processes and mentorship, and learn to work as a team. Rainey staff are leaning into best practices in holistic youth development, social-emotional learning, and belonging.

your gift brings access

Rainey Institute is coming to Cleveland’s west side! We are expanding to another location in the new Pivot Center for the Arts in Clark-Fulton. This expansion will fill an important gap for arts opportunities for LatinX youth,  while we continue to serve students in Hough and East Cleveland.
