This year the One Fund will reach 4,000 children with limited access to arts programming throughout the 2017 - 2018 school year. One Fund programming is for schools with 80% or greater low-income populations. 16 of this year's 20 winning schools have low-income populations of 90% or greater. The 20 schools represent 15 neighborhoods across Chicago's North, West, and South Sides.
$150,000 worth of programming and books will be delivered in three ways:
- Read, Write, & Act Classroom Residency by ECT Teaching Artists
- Field Trip Performance to ECT
- Post Show Theater-Literacy Workshops
