FoCA members represent some of the most influential and affluent arts philanthropists in Southern California and around the country. They are the Institute’s most committed supporters and have raised millions for CalArts scholarships and programs over the past decade. They include alumni, parents of alumni, CalArts Trustees, and arts patrons who are dedicated to supporting the Institute’s vision and excellence through annual leadership gifts.
Throughout the year, FoCA members are invited to a number of intimate salon events that bring them closer to the arts and artists. These exclusive opportunities are always informative, stimulating, and entertaining.
Past FoCA salons have included:
FoCA membership begins at $2,500, made annually or as a monthly donation. Because we encourage CalArts Alumni from the past decade to remain involved with the Institute, we invite alumni from the past 5 years to join FoCA with a gift of $250, and alumni from the past 6 to 10 years, for a gift of $1,000.
