Why Give to Our PROJECT38 Fund

38 plays at 38 schools sounds impossible, but CSC does just that through its most innovating and wide-reaching education program. Your gift helps underwrite teaching artist-based instruction at more than 38 schools across the tristate and supports the PROJECT38 Festival every spring. In 2020, 17% of schools were in rural communities, 40% of schools were located in the suburbs, and 43% of schools served urban populations.

Because of you, upon completion of PROJECT38, 85-90% of students report improvement in inter-personal skills like creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and grit. Also, up to 90% claim improvement in Shakespeare comprehension. Most importantly, PROJECT38 fosters empathy among peers. After participating in PROJECT38, 70% of students claim they have more tolerance for opinions that are different than their own.

“I feel like the virtual switch helped under the circumstances. I loved how positive everyone was and the energy from the virtual festival. It was very well done!” - Ms. Gleason, Mouth of the Wolf Homeschool

“I learned more that without being able to be near each other people will still gather in unexpected ways and produce something great.” - Student from Liberty Junior High School
