Arts for All


An Assistance Program for Local Schools

The Arts for All program was developed by Viterbo University with primary financial assistance from Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin and Southeastern Minnesota, Inc. in an effort to assist economically disadvantaged children and make the arts more accessible to local children. It is Viterbo’s goal to make sure that every child has the opportunity to experience the arts, regardless of their economic background.

With the Arts for All assistance program, schools may apply for a reduction in ticket cost based on their school’s percentage of free or reduced lunches. For example, if 50% of the students at your school qualify for free and reduced lunches, then your school may apply for up to a 50% discount on the price of your tickets.

If you are coming to see Bill Blagg's The Science of Magic, you will not be able to apply for an award for that particular show since the tickets are complimentary.

During the 2013-2014 academic year, Viterbo was able to affect nearly 3,400 students, totaling more than $11,000 through the Arts for All program. Since the start of this program in 2003, Viterbo has helped more than 30,800 students, totaling $70,773.
