Give a child access to the arts with your gift today!

COVID-19 Relief Fund

Please make a gift today of any amount, so we can ensure that more children can access the arts at this time, when they need a creative outlet and a supportive community more than ever.

With schools closed and our in-person programming and performances postponed (after we've paid thousands of dollars for the rights to produce these shows), the loss of earned revenue is devastating. But there is a specific need and opportunity to help kids in stress right now, and with your help, we can pivot and meet that need.

Your gift today allows us to create new art activities to reach students at home, bring community to them, and help channel their loneliness and worry. Your generosity will reach an isolated child in need of connection and hope.

To ensure 100% of your gift goes to BAAY without financial processing fees, you may send a check made out to BAAY to 1059 N State St, Bellingham, WA 98225

BAAY serves approximately 1400 children ages 3-17 annually in our Theatre, Preschool, and EduArts after-school enrichment programs. Through our programs, we create community, and teach children confidence, character, and creativity.
