The California School of the Arts – San Gabriel Valley (CSArts-SGV) Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the financial support of the school's tuition-free arts programs. The CSArts-SGV Foundation is responsible for directing annual and capital fundraising initiatives, leading strategic planning efforts, implementing community outreach programs, and helping to support the school experience for all students.
To help fund its $2.75 million arts conservatory budget each year, CSArts-SGV relies on two 501(c)(3) entities. The school itself is a 501(c)(3) organization, responsible for securing funding that directly supports annual conservatory budgets through private and voluntary donations from students’ families and employer matching programs. The CSArts-SGV Foundation is dedicated to supporting fundraising initiatives above and beyond the annual conservatory budgets, including exciting arts enrichment opportunities, technology and facility upgrades and improvements, and ensuring all students have an opportunity to experience CSArts-SGV’s transformative arts education, regardless of their family’s ability to make a contribution.
