Funds raised will go to the foundation to provide future grants, Pitchford said. The foundation accepts applications for arts education funding in September and March from teachers, teaching artists, principals, district representatives, PTAs and booster clubs.
The grants are based on merit, and applications are reviewed by a grant review panel. The foundation also seeks to partner with community organizations and corporate businesses to provide matching grants for an arts program or project.
