Where Your Contributions Go
At HITS, your support truly makes all the difference.
An arts education should be accessible to all children, regardless of socio-economic status. That’s what we at HITS believe, and that’s why your contributions are so critical to the over 1,000 students who enroll in our education programs every year. Donations to the Annual Fund support HITS’ programs and productions, help to maintain its active theater space, and provide a quality, performance-based education for young people in Houston.
Your financial support of HITS helps to provide our scholarship program with critical support. The HITS Scholarship Committee meets every semester and awards needs-based scholarships that benefit many of our students. Support from donors like you allows us to provide 75% of our financial aid applicants with scholarships each year.
HITS provides access to the performing arts to Houston area youth through partnerships with various Houston Independent School District (HISD) campuses to deliver and augment their theatre arts curriculum. Current programs exist at Harvard Elementary, Hogg Middle School, and River Oaks Elementary.
Annual Production at Miller Outdoor Theatre
In addition to providing professional-level performing arts training for young people, we also aim to enrich lives by broadening cultural experiences and developing talent in those who participate in HITS as students or audience members. To that end, 15%-20% of HITS Theatre’s budget goes toward our annual production at Miller Outdoor Theatre.
Will you join us in our mission?
You can make a difference in many children’s lives by contributing to HITS’ fine tradition of theatre. In return for your generosity, we promise to nurture every student in our programs and enrich their lives through the performing arts. Together, we can continue to advance our educational programs for the benefit of Houston’s youth.
