Annual Campaign 2019-2020


It is our belief that creativity exists in everyone. Our mission is to provide a place where anyone can explore the artist within.

Whether  you are a parent looking to enrich your child's experience in the arts,  or an adult looking to engage in an arts community, our team at Richland Academy of the Arts will provide you with exciting opportunities. For over 28 years, we  have nurtured local creative talent through an environment of  safety, respect, learning, and imagination. 




You can make a difference by making the arts available to all. With your support, we can make more music, create more visual arts, perform more dance, create more theatre, and reach more students! 

Richland Academy of the Arts is  a 501(C)3 non-profit organization dedicated to education with a  focus  on the arts. We serve Richland County, Ohio, and the surrounding  communities.



There are many ways to support Richland Academy of the Arts and our students. First and foremost, come to our events! Watch the dance, hear the music, see the art, be an audience member—enrich your life and celebrate with us our students’ achievements. 

Once you’ve experienced the art and vitality we have to offer, your financial support will make sure that these experiences continue and expand to new students.

Donations made to the Richland Academy of the Arts Annual Fund are a great way to make a  difference and will be used where we need them the most! 

With your SUPER Support our efforts are being realized as we have seen growth over fiscal year 2019. Last year's campaign was a SUPER Success raising $22,673.80! Your support helped purchase scripts for the Little Black Box Theatre; a TV for the Academy Lounge; an outside music wall and interactive sidewalk; sponsored free classes for the RAA Big Band; and provided Tap Workshops.

Richland Academy offers a variety of  financial support options for students. While some of our scholarships are awarded merit based, most of our scholarships are need based.  This is where donations made to The Richland Academy of the Arts Tuition Assistance Fund are important. 

We would be happy to apply your donation to wherever you feel it will make the  biggest impact!
