The Friends Foundation -- with your generous support -- advocates for the arts, and provides scholarships and arts programs for low-income students of all ages to participate in Walnut Creek Civic Arts Education class and programs.

Thank you for coming to Nashville Nights. Are goal is to deliver over 200 scholarships with the funds that were raised!

We are a small foundation with big goals. We are the Friends Foundation, and we're dedicated to supporting arts education in our region. Won't you join us by contributing today? Even the smallest gift helps to ensure Civic Arts Education programs are available to all members of our community, regardless of age or financial status.

You can give the gift of a class in honor of someone special, or give a donation -- the amount is up to you -- that will help support a community member's arts education.
