About the Burbank Arts and Education Foundation

The organization was created on October 1, 2020, after the merger of the Burbank Education Foundation and the Burbank Arts for All Foundation to create a unique and unifying voice for Burbank students. Burbank Arts & Education’s mission is to engage and inspire the community to invest in the diverse educational needs of all $15,000+ students.

By merging two strong foundations, we aim to maximize our impact through more strategic fundraising efforts as we support all students at Burbank Uni ed schools. The new foundation will continue to support innovation and excellence in schools, including arts education, STEM programs, student safety, wellness, and other needs within BUSD.

A history of success

Both institutions have a long history of positively influencing and providing support to BUSD students through the provision of strong combined grants of more than $1,000,000, advocacy programs, programming, and community engagement.

The Burbank Arts & Education Foundation will build on the success of each NGO and amplify our effectiveness as one unified organization. Please join us on our mission to provide critical support to our community.

The Foundation welcomes community support to continue its mission. For more information on how to get involved, or to donate go to
