Taking 16 high school students on a 9 week culinary journey is no easy task.  We need outside support to fund the total budget necessary to create this project.  The majority of a STAGE Culinary project is funded by the support of the public and through generous partnerships, sponsors, and supporters.  This is education at the next level and is truly a gift to our public school students.

“When I dreamed up Rivard Art Education & STAGE Culinary I wanted to make a difference in the way our kids experience education.  I wanted to prove that no idea was to big, and no goal was too insurmountable.” - Mark Rivard, Founder and Creator STAGE Culinary/Rivard Art LLC.  It is with that spirit that we seek financial support for our students and the schools that share our ambition in giving these kids honest, rewarding, and enriching projects that build our communities future professionals and leaders.  This is experiential learning at it’s very best.  We aim to create meaningful partnerships through sponsorships that not only create opportunities for our students, but highlight tangible, real interactions with our supporters and guests.  We seek your involvement as much as we need financial support! 

There are numerous levels of support, sponsorship, and partnership.  Please contact Mark Rivard directly at RivardArt@Gmail.com, or 612-599-9756 to set up a brainstorming conversation about how we can build an outstanding partnership through your generous support.
