Why Support The Viola Project?

Make an Individual Gift

What do arts accessibility, Shakespeare, inclusion training for girls with different needs, world renowned guest artists, expanded access for youths identifying culturally as girls, and need based scholarships for any qualifying girl have in common?


In 2015, The Viola Project expanded into new communities like Oak Park and Bronzeville, met 100% of the needs of girls requiring scholarships, and strengthened programming with artists like The Q Brothers, For Youth Inquiry, and Improvised Shakespeare Co.

We can not continue to do this without your support.

In order to create full access to our programs and continue building
relationships with new community centers across the Chicagoland area,

The Viola Project relies on the generosity of our donors. 

Your contribution will provide support for our partnerships, scholarships, programming, teachers, teen leadership and college apprenticeship programs, long-term strategic planning, and more.

With your help, we can continue to embolden the next generation of Beatrices, Hermias, Kates, Rosalinds, and Violas and ensure that all Chicagoland girls stand up and say, "Do you not know that I am a woman? When I think, I must speak."

All the world's a stage... but only with YOUR help!
