Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Without a doubt, 2020 has been a year like no other. Our community has had to

redefine how we assemble, teach, learn, create and collaborate. We have put

exhaustive effort into preserving hope within our families, motivating our

children and finding ways to stay connected while keeping apart. At COA, we

recognize the struggles and we’re here to help. 

Even in a year marked by social distancing and virtual gatherings, COA

continues to carry out our mission of  identifying  programming that supports

the needs of our school district while working within the parameters of a hybrid

learning environment.  While there are an assortment of programs in the works,

COA is pleased to announce a partnership with The Gamm Theatre which we believe will greatly enhance the arts experience for our students.

For those of you who may not already be familiar with our work, the Cultural Organization of the Arts (COA) was founded and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1980 and has been providing quality cultural arts programming for the students in East Greenwich for over 40 years!  Throughout the last four decades, 100,000 students in East Greenwich have been exposed to over 400 exciting, creative and educational arts programs presented by COA. 

COA is committed to arts education, cultural diversity and stimulating the imagination of every student within the East Greenwich public schools - but we need your help. Now more than ever, we depend upon the generosity of individual donors like you which will make it possible for us to continue providing exceptional programming and grants that support our teachers. 

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today by mail or online

(via the Donate button below). 




On behalf of the COA Board of Directors, EG teachers and students, we thank you for your continued support. Your contribution will directly benefit our students and 100% of every dollar raised will endow student programming in the 2020-2021 school year.


Valerie Remillard, Executive Director
