Funding

Many thanks to those who make sure there’s juice in the creative juice box. We’re fortunate to have dedicated donors from both private and public entities. Just under half of our funding comes from public sources, including an investment by school districts of $15 per child for each participating school to cover artists’ services and supplies. The remaining dollars come from private foundations, corporations and individuals.

Thank you to our sponsors for the 2016-17 fiscal year.
