Support Arts Education this Tax Season

Almost a third of schools in California have no music, dance, theatre, media arts or visual arts available whatsoever. Our agency is working to increase arts education statewide by supporting teaching artists in the classroom, incorporating arts into "Common Core" teacher instruction, and turning around low performing schools through the arts.

Support these efforts with your tax return by contributing to the "Keep Arts in Schools Fund." The fund can be found in Voluntary Contribution Section 110 (425) of the "540" individual state tax-return form, and the minimum donation is just $1. Every dollar counts, so please join us and "Keep Arts in Schools" through your state tax return!  MORE >>
