Welcome to Friends of School of the Arts


A group of passionate not-for-profit Board members, called Friends of School of the Arts, focus their energies on responding to student needs at School of the Arts. The majority of these 1200 students are able to more fully participate in their arts education programs with financial support from Friends.

Friends is a charitable, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that supports the school’s mission by providing financial support and guidance to promote the academic, artistic and humanistic success of School of the Arts’ students. Friends of School of the Arts fills in the gaps with community support to promote positive outcomes for School of the Arts students by supporting everything from college and career prep, to student performances and master classes, to scholarships and personal needs.

Fundraising events and grants are the primary source of funding. Friends invites our students, families and the broader community to learn more about its work. Please consider making a donation and join Friends in making student success our mutual goal.
