Funding should never be an issue! Fox is on both the Illinois ArtsTour and Arts in Education rosters, so funding assistance is available through the Illinois Arts Council. Walt Whitman has been chosen by the Illinois Humanities Council Roads Scholar Program and they will pay for any public performance in the state of Illinois! Schools can apply for funding through their PTA or PTO, or corporate partners. Smaller school districts can partner with neighboring districts to share travel expenses and fees. Book and CD sales can be used to raise funds. Community organizations can offset costs with ticket sales and by selling ads in the program. If funding is an issue please Contact Fox to discuss possibilities.
