Thea Foundation - Bernadett Nonprofit Spotlight
Updated: Jun 3
Dr. Faustino Bernadett and his wife Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett are glad to highlight Thea Foundation in this Nonprofit Spotlight.
Dr. Faustino Bernadett and Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett have chosen this nonprofit to spotlight as Thea Foundation has made great strides in advocating the importance of the arts in the development of Arkansas’s youth.
Together, Dr. Faustino Bernadett and his wife Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett, M.D., MBA, founded The Molina Foundation in 2004. She is the President and CEO, and he is Vice President and Treasurer. Working with the foundation they have supported organizations that reduce disparities in access to education in health across the United.
The foundation works hand-in-hand with community-based organizations in vulnerable communities, and partner with preschool programs, clinics, schools, family service organizations, churches, and other civic organizations serving low-income and at-risk families.
It has a special focus on working with organizations which are making measurable impact in the lives of children and families.
Thea Foundation believes, as do Dr. Faustino Bernadett and Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett, that the arts are so vital to a truly enriching K-12 education, and the organization works diligently to reverse the trend in education of devaluing the arts in schools.
Thea’s Arts Reconstruction has continued to host professional development training, in partnership with the UA-Little Rock’s Windgate Center for Art + Design, every summer. An expansion of visual arts training provides public school teachers the opportunity to receive professional development via learning a new visual arts medium to enable a better platform to advance in their own careers and schools. This training includes a large stipend for materials in support of the new mediums Arts Reconstruction teachers learn.
