Who We Are

Our Mission

The All the Arts for All the Kids Foundation is an independent organization dedicated to developing, sustaining, and supporting the arts as an intrinsic part of every child's education.

It is this organization's passionate belief that the arts are the birthright of every child, and as such, the Foundation champions the arts for students. We enthusiastically raise funds which are used exclusively to supplement ongoing arts programs.


"Every person deserves to shine, and why not start at Elementary school?
Who knows, one of the kids might become the next Da Vinci or Shakespeare."
