Welcome to the BSA Foundation, the school’s fundraising partner!

We hope you’ll join us in supporting the fantastic programs and students at the Baltimore School for the Arts.

We are a 501c(3) organization that works closely with the community to fund the arts, academic, and community initiatives that make Baltimore School for the Arts one of the top five public arts high schools in the country.

Annual and endowment gifts generate funding for test prep and tutoring, master classes and field trips, and art supplies, such as paint, charcoals, pointe shoes, costumes, and set builds. We also finance our free after-school arts program, TWIGS, and educational programming for thousands of elementary and middle school children. Our job is to secure the programs that make a difference for young artists across Baltimore.

Ways to Give

You can make a difference. About one-third of the funding for the high school and 80 percent of the funding for TWIGS comes from generous members of the community such as yourself. These resources are the backbone of the combined arts and academic education. We want to make it easy to give — there are so many ways!
