A Letter from the President
In a time when funding for arts education is being drastically reduced, never has it been more important for our community to have an organization that provides instruction and opportunities in the visual and performing arts and sciences. Through the arts, we learn to be creative, understand different perspectives, problem solve, experiment, discover, and gain confidence which in turn enriches our society. Music and art are universal languages that are understood by all cultures of the world.
Fiddlehead Center for the Arts-Scarborough has been providing these opportunities since its doors opened in 2005. Expanding over the years, Fiddlehead programs now include private music lessons, daytime, homeschool, preschool, and evening arts classes, an after school arts enrichment program, and an arts based summer day camp. These programs are vital to the creative development of our children and community.
I would like you to consider the value of the arts to our community at large. As a non-profit 501c-3 organization, Fiddlehead Center for the Arts-Scarborough cannot continue to pursue its mission alone. Please help us carry on by making a tax deductible donation today. Your generosity will make a positive impact by enabling us to continue to provide opportunities for exploration and the expression of students’ creative, inquisitive, and artistic sides. Every donation, regardless of size, makes a difference.
Thank you in advance for your commitment to support the efforts of Fiddlehead Center for the Arts-Scarborough to continue making a difference in our community.
Karyn MacLeod, President
Fiddlehead Center for the Arts-Scarborough
