Virtual Fundraisers

Virtual Fundraiser event proceeds support The Walt Disney Family Museum’s education programs, which provide arts and animation instruction to the next generation of creative talent. Proceeds also support the museum’s initiatives to provide scholastic opportunities to under-resourced young people, including its newest initiative, the At-Promise Youth Animation Academy, an intensive animation-focused jobs-training program for high school students experiencing economic and social disadvantages.

For more information on the At-Promise Youth Animation Academy, see our September 2021 Update.
