Give to the Scholarship Fund

Each May, we ask you to contribute to KHAC’s Scholarship Fund to help ensure that everyone has access to high-quality arts experiences. With your support, more than 60 percent of our students last year received free or reduced cost tuition.

This is not a normal May, however. While the arts center is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to inspire creativity and keep students engaged in learning during this challenging time–even while we are experiencing a sharp decrease in earned revenue.

Throughout the pandemic, Kennedy Heights Arts Center is making and distributing free Creativity Kits with Cincinnati Public Schools’ free lunches at Woodford Paideia Academy on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The kits include art projects based on contemporary artists of color, with all materials included, as well as wellness and imaginative activities kids can do with no special supplies.

Please consider sponsoring a Creativity Kit! Each day you sponsor provides free kits for 75 local youth.

Your donation of:

  • $75 – Provides creativity kits for One Day
  • $150 – Provides creativity kits for Two Days
  • $225 – Provides creativity kits for a Week


Gifts of any size are welcome and greatly appreciated!
