Five Eastie Public Schools Receive EdVestors Arts Expansion Grants

Boston public schools will continue to receive arts education by partnering with local music and performing arts agencies thanks to a grant from EdVestors.

The five Eastie schools were among 66 Boston Public Schools to receive EdVestors Arts Expansion Grants totaling $455,000.

The Eastie schools to share in this latest round of funding from EdVestors are Adams Elementary, Bradley Elementary, East Boston High School, McKay K-8, and the Umana Academy.

Arts education enables students to express themselves and succeed in ways they often don’t in other subjects, and is a powerful motivator for students to want to attend and engage at school. We couldn’t have made this much progress without our committed funders and dedicated partners who continue to support our mission of increasing equitable access to quality arts education for all of Boston’s public schools students.
Marinell Rousmaniere, President and CEO of EdVestors
