Artist Scholar Sponsorship Program

Artist Scholar Sponsorship Program

The school must raise more than $2 million each year – $2,500 for middle school students and $3,500 for high school students – to continue offering a comprehensive arts program. Although parents are asked to provide an annual parent funding contribution, it is completely voluntary, and CSArts San Gabriel Valley is committed to admitting all youth eligible for enrollment without consideration of their family's ability to make a donation.

Nearly 20% of the school's 700 talented students live below the national poverty level and approximately 40% are in need of some financial assistance to help with the costs of their arts training. In an effort to provide financial support to qualified students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, we created the Artist Scholar Sponsorship Program (ASSP). Every dollar donated to ASSP is an investment in the future of a gifted young student with limited resources. Please consider sponsoring one, or more, of these deserving student artists with a tax-deductible donation to the Artist Scholar Sponsorship Program.

Parent Giving Program

Parent Giving Program

California School of the Arts - San Gabriel Valley is a tuition free, donation dependent public charter school. No student is admitted or denied based upon financial capacity. However, each school year we must raise private funds to underwrite the arts conservatory programs, and we rely on parents and the community-at-large to help us reach this goal.

The Parent Giving Program was created to provide parents with an opportunity to contribute an annual donation to their child’s arts education. All parent funding contributions are voluntary, and directly support the curriculum, classes, faculty wages, and operating costs for each arts conservatory. All cash donations to the school are tax deductible. Additional details on our Parent Giving Program are presented to parents at yearly meetings.

For additional information, please contact Becky Parsons, Family Liaison, at becky.parsons@sgv.csarts.net or 714.560.0900, ext. 5535.
