"Your visit was not only inspiring to our students, but to the teachers involved, too. Their fables written in science class were really fun to read." Diane Olson, Geneseo Middle School

Funding should never be an issue! Workshops can be supported through Reading First and Eisenhower Foundation grants. Fox is on both the Illinois ArtsTour and Arts in Education rosters, so funding assistance is available through the Illinois Arts Council. 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. Historical Societies, Museums, and 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.
