Adopt a Class Program

The Adopt a Class program is an integral part of the Vancouver International Children’s Festival’s Community Outreach Programs and helps us to ensure accessibility to our cultural programming for all children regardless of social or economic circumstances.

Donate today

This program provides featured performance tickets, return bus transportation and all-day access to our hands-on arts activities for school groups in low-income neighborhoods across Metro Vancouver that would otherwise be unable to attend the Festival.

The Adopt a Class program enables children to experience arts activities and, often for the first time, live performances –  all of which can have a lasting impact on children and teach them that music, arts and culture are an important part of life. The need for this program is reinforced each year with the wonderful letters we receive from students and teachers expressing their heartfelt thanks to their donors.

We believe all children deserve the opportunity to see live performers, experience the thrill of artistic experimentation and be an active part of their communities. Help make lifelong memories for children in need!

**A suggested donation of $1,200.00 will provide bus transportation,performance tickets and all-day access to our hands-on arts activities for one school group! However, donations of any amount are welcome!

Thank you for covering the cost of the tickets to the Children’s Festival for our class.  The performance was an unforgettable experience, and without your contributions we wouldn’t have been able to see it.  It was interesting and exciting to see live music in a different language and the energy that came from this music was optimist and joyful.  It was something that a lot of people, including myself, hadn’t experienced before. The memories that you made possible are experiences that every child should have.  I love what your program is doing to bring schools together to learn and discover through the Arts. A big thanks again for an unforgettable day the Children’s Festival.  Kelly, Grade 5 Student at Charles Dickens Elementary School
