For every $10 donated, you will receive a prize drawing entry for the chance to win prizes from local businesses. We appreciate the generosity of our Santa Clarita community partners! Note: A gift is NOT required to attend. Your support fuels scholarships, alumni programming, and more. Whether you make a contribution of $5, $20.19, your class year, or any amount that feels right to you, you can direct your support anywhere that is meaningful to you (ex. scholarships, visiting artists, your school, etc.) Foundations choose the institutions they fund by the percentage of alumni and other CalArtian community members who give back. The more alumni and friends of the Institute make gifts, the more likely we are to receive corporate, foundation, grant, and government support. Every dollar raised makes a difference every day. Thank you!
