Empowering and Engaging Youth Through Arts and Culture

The Arts Foundation believes funding should never be a barrier to participating in the arts, especially for children. AFCC Access addresses the inequities that exist by providing underserved students access to extracurricular arts activities they otherwise would not be able to enjoy. AFCC Access helps children boost their confidence, tap into their creativity, and build strong social connections with their peers. This connection is made possible through individual workshops and class stipends; bus transportation for school field trips; and grants that create accessible and inclusive opportunities for all children.

School Bus Funding from the AFCC Access Fund

The arts provide children with an avenue to dream and a path to pursue their hopes, goals, and aspirations. At the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, we firmly believe that arts matter, especially for our youth.  Through AFCC Access, we aim to open doors to artistic and cultural opportunities for students on Cape Cod through funding to support extra-curricular arts-specific programming as well as transportation. AFCC School Bus funds will provide grants up to $350 to help Barnstable County schools serving K-12 with the transportation costs of student cultural field trips. The field trips must be in the arts, sciences, or humanities. Examples include art and science museums; historic sites; and music, theater, and dance performances.
