The BACF partners with local business leaders and companies looking to support creative youth, such as musicians, photographers, film makers, creative writers and visual artists. 

The Bay Area Creative Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization with the primary goal of increasing the importance of creativity in all our lives. The founders strive to encourage our young creatives by acknowledging that they have an important place in the world and are valued by their community. 

Support is always welcome by the BACF in helping spread the word about the recognition and award opportunities for young artists through entering the CYA. 

The business community can also provide additional cash awards or in-kind donations to recognize and reward our artist applicants. MasterClass, the premier online learning platform that streams lessons delivered by recognized masters of their craft, generously donated free year-long subscriptions to their service to all participating 2021 CYA artists. Partnerships like these help further our mission of inspiring and recognizing the creative spirit in our youth. Please contact us to learn more about how you can partner with the BACF.
