“A Chance to Double Our Impact.”
Matching Donation Drive


AWP Triumps
























As a parent and as a concerned member of our Atlanta community, I am vested in seeing AWP expand its valuable, community out reach projects. For more than 34 years AWP has been transforming young lives through purposeful, experiential, confidence building, theatrical workshops, educational productions and performing arts camps. It has been breathtaking to witness the positive impact and hear amazing stories of thousands who could afford to come … AND thousands more who simply could not.

That’s right, as a non-profit, mission driven 501(C)3, AWP works feverishly to make its programs available to as many as possible, regardless of income or life circumstances. After all, every kid deserves a chance to change the world.

We have targeted 12 deserving, motivated, courageous recipients who are standing by right now, hoping they will get the opportunity to attend Camp Destiny, our signature residential summer camp experience. The deciding factor will be the success of our “Matching Donation Drive.”

Here’s how this works. Right now we have generous, ‘mystery donors’ who have committed to contribute up to $15,000 in new donations IF we can match those funds with new contributions from other AWP advocates and supporters. That’s right, your donation will be automatically doubled! If we succeed in maximizing this opportunity, that will mean $30,000 raised toward scholarships and community outreach projects and, more importantly, a priceless contribution to the lives of MANY incredible young people. Lives will be changed.

The difference will be up to YOU! Your help is needed now to help AWP keep “Changing the World One Audience At A time.”

Please seize the moment right now to make a difference, and say …

YES, I want to help AWP reach their goal! Join me by scrolling down now to make a tax deductible donation.
