A&F’s mission is to continue and enhance the world-class arts education at LaGuardia by providing funds to the art studios; to ensure that all students, regardless of family income, can successfully pursue their talents through several award and scholarship programs; and to keep alumni connected with each other and the school through newsletters, a website, and reunions.
Funds to the school and its students come from A&F’s $5.7 million endowment created by generous donors. Proceeds from this endowment provide $350,000 in funding. A&F’s goal is 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.
