The Foundation allocates at least $25,000 of its annual net income to grant awards for Burbank Unified School District’s schools, teachers and students. Awards are granted which specifically correlate to the BUSD Arts for All Strategic Plan while demonstrating high-quality in-class instruction aligned to the California State Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) standards.

  • We will only consider requests for funds to support projects that occur during the standard school day during class time, are standards-based and have a direct connection to student learning.
  • All funding requests for single-site projects must be signed by the school’s principal; and all multi-site or District-wide projects must be signed by the BUSD Arts Coordinator. All facility related projects must be signed by the BUSD Director of Facilities. This pre-approval is required to ensure all Burbank Arts for All Foundation funding is consistent with BUSD’s Arts For All Strategic Plan and present school needs and priorities.
  • Grants can be awarded for integration of the arts in non-VAPA courses, too, so be creative!
