Another exciting school year has ended and AFP’s impact and our programs continue to grow. The Sansom Foundation recently awarded Art for Progress a $20,000 grant which was a thirty percent increase over last year’s grant! We are ecstatic that the foundation has increased their support for the program. Though the funds are very important we believe the vote of confidence from the Sansom Foundation is even more important as we focus on applying for more funds to expand our important work in the NYC Public Schools.
A special thank you goes out to Barry Komitor who has been instrumental in the development of the program in many ways. His passion and dedication to the organization and the students is unwavering. If we just had a few more Barry Komitors, we can do so much more!
In the following video, Barry and some of our students at Bronxdale High School offer some insight into AFP’s Music Program. Thanks to our intern Fred Hua for doing such a great job working on this video.
