ACT Foundation grew from an idea a few years ago. After watching my kids raise funds to perform an after-school play, I knew someone needed to help the community bring performance art back into the spotlight. After a couple of years and a career change, that someone was me. My passion for dressing up and my love of the arts led to this adventure. I had no idea it would have such a positive impact on our Valley. I am grateful for the support – it takes a village!
“ACT Foundation and Milissa West have provided such a valuable and much-needed outlet in our community for aspiring actors of all ages – from bringing back the beloved tradition of the Christmas Carol to making summer community musicals a reality to bringing Missoula Children’s Theater and acting workshops to our little valley. Her investment in our community will grow theater and empower kids (and adults) with a creative outlet that builds confidence and passion. My daughter has already been a huge beneficiary of this amazing new organization driven by a passionate mom. Thank you, ACT Foundation!” (Iris Saxer, local mom)
