The Gibson Girl Foundation was started in 2008 by singer and artist, Debbie Gibson.
The Mission of the Gibson Girl Foundation is to award scholarships and musical educational opportunities to underprivileged children who display talent and have a desire to participate in programs designed to nurture their individual skills in the performing arts. We primarily offer scholarships for these children to attend any summer performing arts camp of their choice.
To date, the Gibson Girl Foundation has awarded $75,000 in scholarships to children in need.

What would life be like without art, music, dance, theatre? At a time when budgets in public schools are being cut, funding for the arts is often the first thing to go. Entertainment industry professionals Deborah Gibson (multi-platinum recording artist/actress), director Andy Fickman (‘Race To Witch Mountain’, ‘She’s The Man’), Telemundo TV Host Alex Cambert, actress Brittany Curran (Disney TV actress) and renowned acting coach Howard Fine discuss the importance of keeping the arts in public schools and why it’s critical in the development of a well rounded child.
