Cheshire Moon funds various arts projects in Southern California public schools. Funding can be used for arts materials (musical instruments, dance and theater equipment, arts supplies), field trips to arts performances, after-school arts education programs, and arts projects related to helping children in our public schools. Funds are often donated through our partnership with DonorsChoose.org, but we will also consider direct requests from educators or program directors.
