2 Years running

The Have a Heart fundraiser is intended to raise funds to promote the Peoria Art Guild's area outreach programs, which focus on art education with youth art programs in the Peoria area. By successfully funding this campaign, the Peoria Art Guild is able to create a safe and upbeat environment where District 150 students can learn basic art skills that resonate into academic achievement inside the classroom.

This program is intended to both promote the arts in students at a young age, and to foster a safe alternative environment for students to explore the world through a different lense. 

Who Does This Fundraiser Impact? Why Should I Donate?

The Have a Heart fundraiser sponsors Peoria Art Guild programs, such as PREMIER, which engages under-privileged children in studious activities. This campaign impacts real people in your community. 

The PREMIER program helps students foster, not just interest in art, but in education in general. Students enrolled in the Peoria Art Guild’s PREMIER program scored 4 points higher on Math in the ISAT that students not enrolled in the program. Additionally, PREMIER students scored 7 points higher in Reading.

Peoria Art Guild Programs also attract students that would otherwise not be interested in school, and helps boost their engagement, as well as develop lasting friendships. 

The PREMIR Art Program helps students: 

  • Learn more about the arts
  • Engage more in school
  • Build lasting friendships
  • Consider alternative after-school recreation
  • Develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills
  • Create a positive work ethic
