The Santa Barbara Bowl’s annual grant cycles provide critical funding for youth performing arts programs in Santa Barbara County.
- Programs must serve Santa Barbara youth in grades K-12 and must provide performing arts education opportunities.
- Applicants must be a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status [501(c)(3)]; or individual artist; or have a fiscal sponsor that is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.
- Program must start after or be ongoing at the time the application is due. The Bowl does not fund previously completed programs.
Priority may be given to returning applicants, programs that focus on music, and programs that primarily serve the Santa Ynez Valley and/or Northern Santa Barbara County.
