Direct Appeal

Dear Conservatory of Fine Arts Families,

We hope that you and your children are healthy and are enjoying the 2021-2022 session of LAUSD’s Conservatory of Fine Arts program. Although we miss seeing the students and families in person, we are happy that our instructors and staff have been working tirelessly to bring the very best, socially distanced visual arts instruction to your children!

We are kicking off our annual Direct Appeal and we’re asking for your support to help ensure that our students get the very best instruction that they can this session. How can you help? It’s simple; your generous donation to FOVA will help offer vital support to the Conservatory of Fine Arts Program.

Simply log on to FOVA.org and click on the PayPal button. Please be sure to include your child’s full name and the name of the class (Ringgold, Artisan1) in the notes section.

What are donations used for?

Your donations are used to purchase supplemental art supplies and materials for our instructors. Funds that are raised by both direct appeal and snack booth sales help to provide cash scholarships for EVERY student who graduates from the program.
ALL donations are tax deductible: FOVA Tax I.D.: #95-4395256
