MAJOR GIFT: The Wilbur May Foundation

Partnerships like The Wilbur May Foundation, a long-time supporter, help L.A.C.E.R. make the arts an integral part of the after school experience for thousands of youth in Los Angeles. In a new initiative that began in early 2014, The Wilbur May Foundation ARTStars – Connecting Youth Through the Arts program provided an additional 23,300 hours of instruction and performance time across six L.A.C.E.R. schools. By doing so, L.A.C.E.R. was able to provide an arts experience for every student, that’s over 7,000 middle and high school youth who benefited from this expanded collaboration.

Listen to Will Seymour’s conversation with Denise Westwood on 95.5 KLOS “Spotlight on the Community” as he explains how L.A.C.E.R. changes lives daily through arts, athletics and academics and the new initiative made possible by a major gift from The Wilbur May Foundation.
