Education Outreach Overview
The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation is a respected funder and partner in performing arts education for the greater Santa Barbara area. One of the most important parts of our mission is to ensure that everyone has access to music — whether by playing or by listening. In addition to hosting concerts, the Bowl invests in future artists and audiences by supporting performing arts education for youth through our Education Outreach initiative.
Education Outreach includes a broad array of programs, listed below, that provide critical resources for expanding youth access to performing arts, including symposiums, arts advocacy, mentorship, and needs-based financial support for arts education programs.
We offer a range of opportunities for donors to support Education Outreach. In 2016 our goal is to raise $300,000 in new gifts and pledges that will contribute to our ultimate vision: a $4 million Education Outreach Endowment that will provide permanent funding for performing arts education and advocacy in Santa Barbara County.
