Mission: Alumni & Friends (A&F) strives to continue and enhance world-class arts education opportunities for all students at LaGuardia High School by providing awards, scholarships and funds to the school and its students so that regardless of family income, they can successfully pursue their talents.

In the 2011-2012 school year alone, A&F’s $5 million endowment provided more than $500,000 to the school and its students in awards, studio support and equipment. Generous donors have made this possible and it is the goal of A&F to grow this endowment further to provide even more assistance, particularly as the school faces further budget cuts and its needs are greater than ever.

A&F serves as a resource for alumni to inform them of activities and events in the school, to help them keep in touch with each other and to invite them to reunions.
