For 85 years, the Yocum Institute for Arts Education has served as a cultural anchor in and beyond Berks County, PA. With countless off-site programs in schools, libraries, and more, our in-house operations and outreach in the community grow each year.
We are doing our best to cope with the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic. We are thoroughly reviewing all of our options, including loans, grants, and other forms of institutional and government support. Funds given to this campaign will provide us the cash resources to address our immediate needs and allow us to create the structure which will support Yocum through and beyond this uncertain time.
We will contrinue to engage with our students and community members, staying true to our mission to connect and enrich our community through arts education, creative performance, and innovative programs.
Thank you for doing so much during this exceedingly difficult time on behalf of our beloved Institute. The first $500 will be matched by QuickBooks by Intuit. We would love to raise at least this much. Please only give if you have the means to do so. We have already been more than blessed by the kindness and grace of our community.
Executive Director, Yocum Institute for Arts Education
