Funders and Partners

The BW Community Arts School is generously supported by a number of area funders. These investments allow us to engage students of all ages and from all backgrounds in our programming regardless of their financial means. In addition, two Community Arts School endowments help support special projects, faculty professional development and allow for tuition to remain affordable.

Key Initiatives

Over 80 Access
Through the support of private donations, any community member over the age of 80 years old can participate in Community Arts School classes and ensembles at no cost.

Summer Music Program Access
Through the support of Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, the Nord Family Foundation, the Nordson Corporation and the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, the BW Community Arts School is able to provide summer camp experiences for students with limited financial means in Lorain County and within the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.
