Your support is needed!

A tax-deductible gift to Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture provides the critically-needed support to allow us to present Arab arts at the highest level; offer educational programs that affirm Arab culture; provide opportunities for cross-cultural exchanges that bridge differences in peaceful, respectful ways; and give young people a means to take action through artistic expression.

Over the past twelve years, Al-Bustan has grown from a two-week summer camp into an organization offering year-round arts programs for youth and adults. As a result, people of diverse backgrounds are engaging in meaningful ways with the Arabic language and culture.

Your donation sustains our unique programs and goes a long way towards building our future and enriching peoples’ lives through the arts. Please consider making your donation today. You can choose from three funds:

Al-Bustan EDUCATION Fund supports scholarships for youth of diverse backgrounds to attend summer camp, free arts instruction for underserved students in public schools, and continuation of community music ensembles and workshops

Al-Bustan ARTISTS Fund supports presenting internationally renowned guest artists from various disciplines and genres, and supports a resident takht ensemble of exemplary musicians

Al-Bustan’s GREATEST NEED Fund supports general operations and various programs of the organization
