Where Does My Money Go?
Make A Positive Impact With Every Donation
SHARP is grateful for every contribution and donation we receive. Every dollar is spent wisely, with the majority of the donations used to support our programs that positively impact students and teachers in Milwaukee, Racine and Waukesha Counties.
Principals and teachers appreciate the visual art experiences SHARP educators bring into classrooms. SHARP gives each student a book to take home and also gives each teacher science or social studies books to build their classroom libraries. Educators can connect to our digital portal to obtain additional resources and to collaborate with the larger SHARP community. We update our grade-specific student and teacher resources each year to reflect research-based best practices and teacher feedback.
For students and teachers, visiting museums and other community-based learning sites has the power to spark curiosity and reignite a love of learning. SHARP helps make these experiences possible by serving as the bridge between classrooms and the community. Through collaboration with highly trained museum and community-based educators, we are able to bring the best of arts integration and experiential learning to students and teachers.
Classroom Teacher Development
At SHARP, we are constantly learning and growing from our work with teachers. Our goal is to provide a network of support for teachers in which they can share resources, and learn and grow together in order to maximize capacity for weaving experiential learning and arts integration into daily work with students. We use feedback to personalize professional development opportunities, helping teachers make the most of our program within their schools.
