Did you know? As part of its matching grant agreement with the California Department of Education and the Santa Barbara Unified School District, VADA must raise one-third of its funding from the community every year. This goal is achieved primarily through fundraising by the non-profit organization, Friends of VADA. The 2016-2017 Annual Campaign goal is to raise at least $125,000, primarily from VADA parents & other private supporters, combined with income from fundraising events and grants from philanthropic organizations.

Contributions to the VADA Annual Campaign directly fund many important aspects of the program, including quality art supplies, guest speakers, enrichment activities like field trips and teambuilding, academic and administrative support, and events like VADA Graduation. In addition, fundraising beyond the required minimum funding match ensures the continuation of the program in the event of a critical state or district budget shortfall. 
Friends of VADA is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization which supports the Visual Arts & Design Academy (VADA) both financially and with in-kind volunteer help.
