FOFA Annual Membership Drive - Please Join Us!

As Friends of Fine Arts (FOFA) embarks on our 15th year, we are pleased and proud of the energy and direction of the organization. If you aren't already familiar with FOFA, we'd like to take a moment to introduce you to our activities and invite you to join us.

What does FOFA do?
FOFA works in collaboration with Band Boosters and Choir Boosters to serve more than 1,700 students who participate in curricular arts programs at South High School. Last year, FOFA supported more than $15,000 in projects which helped ignite a passion for the arts in our musicians and visual artists, including:

Student scholarships - FOFA offers summer study grants in music and visual art and assistance to students requiring financial support to pursue private instruction.

Student fundraising - by organizing various fundraisers, FOFA helps students fund their own accounts and pay for supplies, lessons and school-sponsored trips.

Visiting musicians and artists - FOFA helps expand the boundaries of the classroom by supporting opportunities for students to learn from professional artists.

Equipment - students of the visual and musical arts at South High School benefit from FOFA's purchases of supplemental equipment for fine arts instruction.

Events - FOFA helps organize and provide hospitality support for concerts, art shows and other fine arts events.

How can you help?
Parents can support our efforts in three ways:
1.   Contribute any level of financial assistance by joining FOFA
2.   Provide volunteer assistance at events
3.   Support our various fundraisers held throughout the year

We fully understand the complexities of the current economy and want you to know that your participation, at any level, is valued and enables fulfillment of our vision to ignite a passion for the arts in every learner. Please see our brochure for more information on our organization and to indicate your commitment.

Thanks in advance for your participation on every level. We anticipate another fantastic year in the arts here at South High School.

Artistically yours,
The 2012-2013 FOFA Board
