The seedling Foundation is a 501[c]3 non-profit organization with the mission to support art programs at Stivers School for the Arts in Dayton, OH.
We believe in the value of arts education. Why? Because we witness that value spring to life every day in studio and classroom. Put simply, students immersed in the arts perform better in academics and in life.
We work to provide the additional funds required to make these immersive experiences possible. With broad community support, Stivers provides life-defining experiences for its students.
Our belief is substantiated by the scholarships, honors, and the life achievements of our graduates. That’s why we do it.
