Your Impact

Last year, FOA provided over $47,000 to fine arts students including $12,000 in project grants and $35,000 in scholarships. Nearly 62 households made donations to Friends of the Arts, for a total of approximately $22,079. The average donation was $356 per household.

Your tax-deductible donation provides meaningful financial support through scholarships and grants for generations of students in art, arts technology, dance, music, and theatre.

Student Grants and Scholarships

Scholarships including the Friends of the Arts Endowed Scholar help offset the cost of attendance.

The Student Grant Program provides support for student creative projects, research, events, and visiting artists. Grants are available up to $500 for an individual and up to $1,000 for a group.
