March 10, 2009|Mike Boehm

Former Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Michael Eisner and his family's Eisner Foundation are giving $1.25 million to a program at the California Institute for the Arts that brings arts instruction to L.A.-area school children.

The grant, to be paid in $250,000 installments over five years, is the largest ever received by CalArts' Community Arts Partnership, university officials said.

The community arts program, launched 19 years ago, sends CalArts faculty, students and alumni into neighborhood schools and community centers to teach a wide range of courses in music, dance, theater and visual arts. Its current annual budget is $1.7 million.
