BUSD’s Music Is Instrumental

Burbank Unified School District has identified a need of $1.2 million to repair or replace broken musical instruments in their middle and high schools and they set a district wide goal 4.4 to work with community partners to raise 10% of that need by the end of this school year, naming the year long campaign “Music Is Instrumental.” Led by BUSD, the “Music is Instrumental” campaign is a coordinated effort involving the Musicians at Play Foundation, Burbank Arts for All Foundation, the Los Angeles County Arts Education Collective, the Burbank Education Foundation, Burbank Music Academy, Music Junction, parents, IMA booster organizations, corporate, and small business partners to accomplish this goal.

In October 2017 to May 2018, Burbank Arts for All Foundation entered into an MOU agreement with BUSD to support their campaign in the areas of funding, communications, and community outreach and advocacy. The Foundation provided:

  • a $10,000 grant in October 2017 to benefit BUSD’s Music Is Instrumental campaign
  • hosted a Creative Circles Forum in March 2018 focused on the Business of the Music Industry, with experts and educators bridging the gap between public education and local businesses in the music industry right here in Burbank!
  • coordinated with BUSD on a shared communications plan to generate community awareness
  • supported a community wide campaign, called 1000 for $100, led by community leaders Linda Walmsley, Michael Cusumano, and Michael Hastings

The Results?

With all of their combined partners the BUSD Music Is Instrumental campaign raised $139,000 and BUSD is currently in the process of ordering new instruments for BUSD students!

 

Thank you to the Donors of 1,000 for $100 in support of  “Music Is Instrumental!”
