Friends of the Academy of Music and Performing Arts (AMPA) must raise significant resources to supplement district budgets. Friends of AMPA understands that the arts are absolutely elemental to our students’ development and education. Providing every AMPA student this opportunity requires more funding than LAUSD provides. We ask families to support our efforts toward raising $500 per student in any way they can. You can help by sponsoring a student or making a donation in any amount. These funds will cover expenses like festival entry fees, buses, new and replacement equipment, music, and additional educational and enrichment opportunities to professional performances and industry experiences.
If you have opportunities for seeking corporate donations or have experience writing applications for grants, please contact us at FriendsofAMPA@gmail.com..
