AOK’s primary grant, the Landis Grants, build equity through stability of funding and growing the number of offerings per week within each school. Named after AOK’s founder Sally Landis, Landis Grants are chosen each spring for the following school year. Landis Grants are for hands-on arts education in Oakland Unified School District’s (OUSD’s) most under-resourced schools. Arts organizations, independent teaching artists, and classroom teachers are all eligible. These grants have a range of up to $10,000 in FYE22, and AOK is working to increase the range in the coming years.
