We can’t do what we do without your support. As an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we rely on donor contributions to sustain our mission and vision.

By supporting First Person Arts, you become part of an inclusive organization that fosters, and is fostered by, unique and original voices. Every dollar supports the educational and artistic experiences we offer throughout the year, including the First Person Arts Festival, StorySlams, classes and workshops, and Applied Storytelling. Your contributions help us remain one of the most accessible and affordable organizations in the region.

We invite our community to support us as members, fundraiser attendees, corporate members, sponsors, advertisers, and volunteers.
