Grants of up to $5,000 to Los Angeles Area, California teachers, schools, and organizations to support middle and high school performing arts activities. For the purposes of these grants, performing arts may include dance, music, opera, theatre, musical theatre, drama, spoken word and poetry and performance art.
Grants are meant to help offset project and program materials and related costs at a specific school. This support helps dedicated classroom teachers and teaching artists make their exciting ideas and dream projects a reality. In addition, grants make it easier for Los Angeles-area classroom teachers to do their best to provide a wide range of performing arts experiences for their students.

Grants are awarded up to $5,000. However, if your program costs more than $5,000, applicants should provide the full program budget and then designate which line items you are requesting funding for specifically. Information must also be provided about the other funding you have secured or are seeking to support the remainder of your program/budget.
School Site Grants support performing arts programs or performance projects that take place soon after the deadline date.
Eligible individuals, schools, and organizations must be in the Los Angeles area to be considered for funding. See the eligible site link in Grant Coverage Areas below.
Individuals, schools, and organizations must be able to prove their need for funding. Note: Funding is awarded on a need basis. Priority is given to programs that are in the most need or currently have no or minimal performing arts programming support.
Individuals, schools and organizations that have previously received a Flourish grant award must wait one full year before reapplying.
School Site Grants are awarded to performing arts programs that specifically involve middle school and high school youth.
Community Arts Organizations must partner directly with a school site in order to be considered for funding. If the Community Arts Organization submits the application (as opposed to the school), the organization must include a letter of support from the school site partner. This letter (either from a teacher or principal) must specifically state why the school wants to partner with the arts organization. Please make sure that the school representative is as specific as possible in this letter and includes all logistics (days, times, location, etc.) that have been agreed upon so that the foundation knows the school is fully committed to the implementation of the program.
