In addition to supporting the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza directly, funds raised by the Alliance support a variety of outreach efforts and performance groups. Approximately a quarter of all donations go to Kids and the Arts, an outreach program that gives children from underserved communities the chance to experience the world of art firsthand. These students are brought to the Fred Kavli Theatre, gaining art experience that often leads to a higher graduation rate and better scores in school. Funds also give community performance groups the opportunity to make use of the stages the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza operates. Each year, the organization takes grant applications from local performers, giving them the chance to share the fruits of their labors with the community as well as their loved ones.
