ATA is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit funding arts programs in public elementary schools. Co-founded by former Guns n' Roses drummer, Matt Sorum. Supported by Jane Lynch and others.
It is the mission of Adopt the Arts Foundation to bring together well-known artists, public figures, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and the general public to save the arts in America's public schools. We believe that it is morally and ethically incumbent upon us to foster the creativity, dreams, hopes, and imaginations of our children.

Here are a few of the schools we've supported:
