Contribute to CalArts’ future by planning for a special kind of gift. Although cash contributions are always appreciated, there are other creative and flexible options that can benefit you and the Institute. One of these ways is to help by creating a trust while you are living, or by including the Institute in your will.

CalArts Legacy Circle

The CalArts Legacy Circle recognizes and honors individuals who have thoughtfully provided for the Institute in their estate plans. With vision and forethought, Legacy Circle supporters provide for CalArts’ future success through long-term estate and financial plans; ensuring that CalArts will be able to build upon the strength of its faculty, students and alumni and education programs and remain the premier arts school of its kind. To become a member of the CalArts Legacy Circle you need to notify us that your will or trust or life income arrangement provides for CalArts.
