Friends of CalArts (FoCA) are a collective of alumnx, families, and friends of the Institution who are dedicated to supporting our mission through annual gifts. 

 

Founded in 1971, the group’s ongoing generosity has helped the Institute award scholarships and provides many young artists with the resources and tools necessary to achieve their creative potential. 

Throughout the year, special programs and events are planned for FoCA donors that highlight our ongoing educational endeavor grounded in openness, experimentation, critical engagement, and creative freedom.
