The S.T.A.R. Foundation of Monterey County supports youth-related performing arts activities in Monterey County. We provide support for programs operating under the umbrella of a non-profit organization in Monterey County, CA.. Our grants are designed to supplement existing programs by providing funding for capital technical expense (e.g., lighting, sound and musical equipment), augment instruction by providing guest artists/docents in acting, make-up, scenic, sound and lighting design, maintenance of musical instruments, scholarships, tuition relief, and more. We also fund reimbursement of discounted or free tickets for students and their families for local productions. Please note that the foundation does not fund salaries, operating costs or office/publicity materials. The Board of Directors will review requests and approve funding generally twice a year.
