The foundation is committed to bringing exceptional arts experiences into the Philadelphia public schools. The Reliance Matrix Foundation is recognized as an Educational Improvement Organization by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

Lifelong Benefits

Since 1996, tens of thousands of teens have benefited from Reliance Matrix Foundation’s cultural outreach programs.

In fact, recent research suggests that Arts education can improve student performance in intellectual and academic areas, including math and science.
