What does the Foundation support?

  • Theatre Buddies & ArtsPartners are programs that provide access to the performing arts to at-risk youth and under-served people in the community.
  • Prairie Center Youth Programs, including the award-winning Schaumburg Youth Orchestra, Schaumburg Dance Ensemble, Schaumburg Youth Choir, Schaumburg Summer Theater and Screen Test Student Fest.
  • The Foundation supports the Season of Entertainment at the Prairie Center for the Arts. Ticket sales only cover about half of the cost of bringing fine entertainment to the Center each season. 

“If I had to list one thing that binds together the fabric of society, it would be art. It is perhaps the ultimate measure of civilization and a way that diverse cultures speak – one to another. Communities are enriched by it, and city and suburbs alike need to promote its growth and development.”

Al Larson, former Village President, Schaumburg
