Oakland Fund for the Arts


Bringing the Arts Back to School.

Oakland Fund for the Arts, a 501(c)3 organization, has awarded over $500,000 for performance and visual art programs in under-served Oakland public schools since 1996.

Every dollar we raise, every child who participates in one of our funded programs, brings us closer to our goal to change the lives of every child in our community. We are changing the lives of thousands of Oakland public school kids every day by bringing hands-on arts education back to school. With your support, our efforts improve academic success, build self-esteem and enhance growth among Oakland’s most at-risk kids.
