At Charter, we value the opportunity to give back to the communities we serve. And by supporting local arts programs through charitable donations and sponsorships, Charter helps strengthen programs that play a vital role in the cultural and economic fabric of those communities.

Over the years, Charter has partnered with Ovation TV, America’s premier arts network, to award 60 grants totaling $600,000 toward arts education in the areas we operate. This year alone, we’re presenting $100,000 to 10 incredible local organizations through the Stand for the Arts program:

  • Central Music Academy, Lexington, KY
  • Donkey Mill Art Center, Hōlualoa, HI
  • Duluth Arts Institute, Duluth, MN
  • Durango Arts Center, Durango, CO
  • Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra, Dallas, TX
  • Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy, Brooklyn, NY
  • Latino Theater Company, Los Angeles, CA
  • Madison Youth Arts Center, Madison, WI
  • Park Playhouse / Playhouse Stage Company, Cohoes, NY
  • Prodigy Arts Program, Tampa, FL

Last year, we partnered with AXS TV to launch the Band Together for Music Education initiative to uplift local music education groups with $50,000 in grants to improve music education in communities served by Charter. Each of these five great organizations were given $10,000:

  • Heart of LA – HOLA, Los Angeles, CA
  • Eastmoor Academy, Columbus, OH
  • Dr. Billy E. Dade Middle School, Dallas, TX
  • Prine Elementary, Bradenton, FL
  • Rochdale Early Advantage Charter School (REACS), Jamaica, NY

Charter continues to support initiatives that enrich communities — all while promoting cultural diversity and creativity and contributing to the well-being of the communities where our employees and customers live and work. Through our support of the arts, we are bolstering the great work that many organizations are doing in these spaces.
