Vision:
Young people in the St. Louis area will have additional opportunities to create, appreciate, and participate in live performances.
 
Mission Statement:

The Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation fosters, promotes, and encourages young people in the St. Louis region to discover and participate in the joy and wonder of live performances.

 

The Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation provides grants to non-profit organizations in support of quality projects focused on youth initiatives which complement the Foundation’s own programs:

  • St. Louis Teen Talent Competition provides scholarships, prizes, and performance opportunities for emerging talent.
  • Kids’ Night on Broadway introduces young audiences to live theatre.
  • Broadway Master Classes encourage young performers to learn and refine their craft from touring professionals.
  • Special Projects ignite imagination for expression through story, sound, image, and movement.

 

With its mission of engaging young people in quality arts learning and participation, the FPACF supports projects that connect young people to artistically rigorous programs.

 

What the FPACF Funds:

 

The FPACF is committed to the artistic growth and development of young people.  

 

Funds will be allocated through grants to a select number of organizations in the St. Louis region that have a commitment to providing young people with meaningful experiences that build their artistic skills and deepen their appreciation for the performing arts.  The FPACF seeks to fund projects with a spirit of innovation and collaboration.
