Grant Detail

Oakland Fund for the Arts Accepting Applications for Public School Arts Programs
Oakland Fund for the Arts

The mission of Oakland Fund for the Arts is to raise money for hands-on arts education programs for kids in under-served Oakland public schools. To date, the fund has awarded more $500,000 in grants in support of performance and visual art programs in 110 public schools located in some of Oakland’s most distressed areas.  

To advance this mission the foundation will award grants of up to $5,000 for arts education programs in the Oakland, California, public schools. Programs must be hands-on arts education programs in which children participate in the direct experience of creating art; supported by the principal with active participation of a school liaison to ensure the program’s success; conducted at a school (or schools) or at an off-site location in conjunction with a school.

The fund also provides one-time funding for specific arts-related needs, depending on the circumstances.

Visit the Oakland Fund for the Arts website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
