Schools that demonstrate being in need will have programs targeted towards them in a way to maximize support.
Needs Targeting Programs supported by the VAPA Foundation include:
- Art Supplies – Last academic year, the art supply drive distributed $12,724.95 in art supply kits to 3,373 students across 29 different schools taught by 54 separate teachers. VAPA also received $8,644.10 in-kind art supply donations. This allowed VAPA to create an art supply pantry and $7,365.43 in supplies have been distributed.
- Musical Instruments – By leveraging in-kind donations of musical instruments valued at $125,651, the VAPA Foundation has been able to secure $75,000 from county funding to meet the musical education need of San Diego Unified School District.
