COVID-19 Update

Due to the personal and economic challenges facing our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Burbank Arts for All Foundation has had to take some difficult steps to reduce our expenses and preserve the sustainability of our organization.

We have made a substantial reduction in staff hours, including the elimination of the Program & Outreach Manager position. As a result, Saundra Montijo will be leaving the Foundation on April 29.  Saundra’s many contributions to Burbank Arts for All Foundation span six years, and we are immensely grateful for the many ways she has supported our mission and the students of Burbank Unified School District. She will be missed and we know the community joins us in wishing her all the best in future endeavors.

The Foundation also wants to thank Azra Variscic, Director of Development, and Donna Martley, Bookkeeper, for their flexibility and commitment to the organization during this unprecedented time.  They will continue to work remotely to maintain the limited operations of the Foundation until we are able to return to full operations and fundraising.  We hope that is very soon.

We are also in communication with our partners at Burbank Unified School District as they continue to adjust to remote learning for the remainder of the school year while also facing a significant budget crisis. We are committed to working with all stakeholders in our community to help where we can.

The Foundation’s office is currently closed to the public. Our staff can be reached via email:
