Burbank Arts and Education Foundation
The mission of the Burbank Arts Education Foundation is to generate long-term, broad-based financial support to ensure equal access to high-quality arts education for all students in the Burbank Unified School District.
The BAEF raises money throughout the year, and provides grants twice a year to the District, Principals, Teachers, Arts Coordinators, PTA groups, and others that have applied for funding for programs that will further the implementation of the Burbank Arts for All Strategic Plan, which you can download here. The Foundation raises funds by soliciting direct donations from parents of Burbank students, Burbank businesses, the general Burbank community, and from the City of Burbank. Our main fundraising event is the fall Downtown Arts Festival (which the Foundation will co-sponsor for the first time in 2007), which draws more than 30,000 residents to the Downtown area.
