Ralph Medhurst Arts in Education Fund


The Ralph Medhurst Arts in Education Fund (Medhurst Fund) was established in memory of board member Ralph Medhurst in 2005 and runs in conjunction with the Center’s Arts in Education (AIE) seasonal programming. This fund gives the gift of live theatre to underserved youth who may never have otherwise had access to the arts through free or highly discounted program tickets. Exposure to the Center’s theater programs allows children the opportunity to expand their horizons and foster learning in performing arts, math, science, history, and language arts.

Since its inception, the fund has donated more than 33,000 tickets to children in almost 80 school districts in the Chicago and Southland regions.

Your donation to the Medhurst Fund will ensure equal access to arts and education exposure to area schoolchildren.
