Bank of America is all about giving back to, and advancing, its communities, supporting those who live where they work. This is why the company began the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, which provides grants to organizations that are making a difference.
Recently, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation presented Variety the Children’s Charity of St. Louis with a $25,000 grant to support our Performing Arts programs. These funds will specifically benefit Variety Children’s Chorus and Variety Dance.
These two programs are inclusive, meaning kids and teens of all abilities are welcome. Both Chorus and Dance work to establish skills, build confidence and independence, and foster lifelong friendships. The programs also spread a message of inclusion throughout St. Louis area through various performances and concerts, including at Variety St. Louis’ annual Dinner with the Stars gala.
Thank you, Bank of America, for your generosity. This grant will help us provide the access to these programs as well as the opportunity to shine to kids with all abilities from around the region.
You can learn more about the Bank of America Charitable Foundation here, and about Variety St. Louis’ Chorus and Dance programs here. If you’d like to see the Variety Children’s Chorus in action, mark your calendars for our holiday concert at the Sheldon on Thursday, December 13. More details to come!
