Support Our Important Mission

Help us support creative learning for the 479,000 K-12 public school students and the 33,000 teachers in Arkansas. Thea Foundation provides the needed art supplies and resources to help equip as many classrooms as our budget permits. We can do more. We need your assistance to inspire young minds to think creatively. Together, we can fund the future of the arts for young Arkansans.

Supporting the Arts in Education


Every year, we hold Thea's Day of Giving on December 6 and invite our supporters to take part in furthering arts education in Arkansas. December 6 is at the heart of our foundation’s mission as it is the birthday of Thea Kay Leopoulos. Named for the daughter of Paul and Linda Leopoulos, Thea Foundation carries on the legacy of Thea, who thrived academically, socially and emotionally thanks to her artistic pursuits.
