Because of this support, our schools have been able to attract and retain some of the very finest arts teachers — teachers who have time and again demonstrated their unflagging dedication to and support of our students’ learning. They have set a bar for excellence in the arts from which the entire community benefits; however, to sustain this effort requires support beyond the school budget.
This is where IMADA comes in. IMADA is a non-profit founded to act as a support organization for fine arts education in Ipswich. Last school year alone, through the generous donations of people like you, IMADA was able to provide:
