“Our Children, Our Inspiration”

We are excited to welcome new families and welcome back returning ones. And we are so happy to welcome our students for in-person instruction. Grand Arts has an unprecedented financial need, so we are launching the Grand Arts PTSA’s second Annual Campaign 2021-2022, to support our school.

Please help us help “Our Children, Our Inspiration”, for the present and their future.

If you are able to donate now, we are ready for you: DONATE.

If you’d like to know more, and we hope you do, please read on.

Grand Arts is a dual-mission school, dedicated to providing an outstanding academic and arts education, but LAUSD only effectively funds our academics.  Until 2018, Grand Arts was fortunate to have a benefactor who donated generously to our arts programs. That outside donation stopped in 2020, and because of the COVID-19 restrictions, auxiliary organizations such as our PTSA are not able to raise funds in-person and Grand Arts PTSA is committed to helping wherever it can.

Our fundraising goal for the 2021/2022 school year is $10,000 which will be used to support all four academies in the following ways.

  • Arts academies support for additional needed expenses: Funds raised will be used toward expenses such art supply kits for students to use at school, at home.
  • Arts academies support for general expenses: performance rights, costumes,  music, supplies, guest choreographers, field trips and much more.
  • PTSA programs: Student support activities such as Teen Internship and Volunteer Fair, Graduating Senior Scholarships, AP scholarships, Grad Night, Family Engagement activities, Teacher & Staff appreciation, to name a few.

Grand Arts needs its community. If our 1000+ families each donated $10, we’d exceed our goal. We know many of us are struggling, and we are not asking for donations from those suffering financial hardship.

If you can, please consider making a donation of any kind ($5, $10, $20, $50, $100+).

If you prefer to send a check, please make it payable to: Grand Arts PTSA.

Our mailing address is: Grand Arts PTSA, Cortines School of VAPA, 450 N. Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90012.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please feel free to contact us at info@grandartsptsa.org or visit our website, grandartsptsa.org.

We are asking you to please give what you can and help PTSA reach our goal.

Thank you for your support.
