how to support rainey

There are many ways to help support the Rainey mission.

Donate Now

You can help always support all of our programs with monetary donation.  Gifts of all sizes make our success possible; no gift is too small to sustain and grow our enriching programs in visual arts, music, dance, and drama.

BeatKeepers monthly giving

Rainey’s “Keeping The Beat” (BeatKeepers) Monthly Giving Program is the easiest way to become a part of this supportive community. Our BeatKeepers’ monthly contributions provide essential and consistent financial support that helps Rainey sustain and enhance our programs, and guarantees that no child–ever–is unable to participate because of cost!

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers support Rainey’s goal of delivering accessible arts education to Cleveland youth. They work alongside lifelong educators, artists, and nonprofit staff, and witness firsthand the power of the arts.  Whether you’re interested in helping out with an event or several days a week, your contribution makes a huge difference in the lives of the children we serve and our community!

Glissando Annual Event

Glissando is Rainey’s fun and inspiring annual benefit that celebrates our community of supporters while spreading awareness of the impact of arts education programs. Every year, we celebrate an outstanding individual or company as our honoree for their impressive contributions to the arts in Cleveland. Glissando also highlights the accomplishments of our Rainey Kids while engaging corporate sponsors, public officials, and individual supporters to raise critical funding for Rainey’s mission.

More Ways to give

Rainey Institute is grateful to the foundations, corporations, organizations, and government partners who support our mission to develop positive growth for Greater Cleveland’s youth through education and engagement in visual and performing arts.
