Featured Donors

"We hear more and more about how classroom teachers are being pushed to 'teach to the test' and how funding for the arts is waning. Creative writing is getting pushed aside. We believe that 826LA provides students a perfect environment in which to receive great instruction from talented and interested teachers, and we want to see it continue.


Creativity is vital for a full life. We know the freedom and fearlessness that creativity can offer, and we love the way 826LA encourages their young writers to dare to be bold, silly, and original."

Beth Hagenlocker & Marc Evan Jackson, monthly 826LA donors and founders of the Detroit Creativity Project, which brings improvisation instruction into Detroit public schools.
