Friends of School of the Arts Foundation serves as a link between the students and parents of Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts and the community at large. By arranging for Asawa SOTA’s participation in public gatherings, promoting the school’s accomplishments, and engaging with local artistic and business leaders, FoSOTA seeks to strengthen SOTA’s social and financial ties to the broader Bay Area community.
This outreach can take a number of forms. Over the past year, FoSOTA has taken the initiative on several community projects, including:
Connecting SOTA to broader charitable giving opportunities
Distributing free tickets for SOTA performances to San Francisco Unified School District middle schools, offering middle school students the opportunity to experience live theater and encouraging a more diverse population to consider applying to SOTA
Promoting student performances at community centers and neighborhood street fairs
Parents and supporters with connections to the community are always encouraged to contact FoSOTA to explore the possibility of building further meaningful partnerships.
