For The Arts Endowment

In 2003, an active and passionate group of parents and arts supporters approached the Ed Foundation to conduct an arts endowment fundraising campaign, which, over three years, raised $2 million.

The For The Arts Endowment was valued at at $3,380,831 as of June 30, 2023. Income from this endowment ($166,000 in 2023-2024) funds arts programs in our schools, including a hip-hop dance teacher for 6th graders, arts programs at Olympic High School, middle and high school theater funding, music coaches in Title I elementary and Title I feeder middle schools, grants to Samohi's band, orchestra and choir, and grants to all secondary Visual Arts teachers.
