Gifts to MU Extension’s Community Arts Program (CAP) gift fund will help us achieve our goal of providing expertise and support to promote and foster art-based community and economic development in partnership with Missouri communities, University of Missouri faculty and students and MU Extension. Working collaboratively, using the arts, we work with communities to discover creative and innovative ways to use the arts to help reshape and bolster their social, physical and economic wellbeing. We recognize that the arts are an important means to improve the quality of life in communities of any population or size.
Why should you support the arts? Because the arts can:
• Boost local economies
• Improve academic performance
• Foster creativity and innovation among youth
By pledging your support today, your gift will help MU Extension’s Community Arts Program continue to reach a multi-generational population in Missouri using the arts to build vibrant communities and create economic opportunity.
