Partner with CharacterWorks

When you give to CharacterWorks, you take part in shaping the lives of Richmond-area youth as they discover their voice, their story, and their faith through the arts. As a non-profit organization, we rely on continued support from the community to bring arts education to our students and Broadway-style shows to our community.

Thanks to the generous support of contributors like you, we are able to bring quality community theater productions and training to Richmond kids in a professional family environment in which children are encouraged to develop their talents. We look forward to partnering with individuals and businesses that share our vision of family, faith and quality!

Pray for financial stability so that we can focus our energy on inspiring and educating our students. Pray for our teachers and directors as they prepare their classes and shows, and for our board as they lead CharacterWorks. Your spiritual support is even more important to us than your financial support.
