Pick Your Passion

Sponsor an OCSA Student or Support Your Conservatory!

As we approach the holiday season, we invite you to support one or both of the OCSA Foundation’s annual campaigns, the Artist Scholar Sponsorship Program (ASSP) and Hearts for the Arts (H4A). This hybrid giving challenge offers a customizable opportunity to directly support our talented artist-scholars and their arts conservatory experience. 

Double Your Impact

Thanks to the generosity of two anonymous donors, all pledges and donations received before December 31, 2021 will be MATCHED, dollar-for-dollar, up to $100,000! Both your donation and the matching gift can be allocated to your conservatory of choice.

Passionate about helping students in need?

Approximately 200 of OCSA’s nearly 2,300 talented students come from families that live below the national poverty level. Approximately 45% are in need of some financial assistance.

The Artist Scholar Sponsorship Program (ASSP) provides the complete OCSA experience to these talented and deserving students — covering the costs of their arts training and other school-related needs, including yearbooks, school dances, transportation, art supplies, and performance fees. OCSA is committed to removing barriers for any student to achieve academic and artistic success. 

We invite you to support at one of the levels listed below, however, donations of all sizes will make a difference! Both your donation and the matching gift can be allocated to your conservatory of choice.

$30,000

Fully supports comprehensive arts training and other needs for one student through the complete six-year OCSA experience (grades 7-12).

$20,000

Fully supports comprehensive arts training and other needs for one student for all four years of high school (grades 9-12).

$10,000

Feeling passionate about both ASSP and H4A?

If you would like to donate to both funds, you will need to complete two separate transactions.

Contributions to both ASSP and H4A are 100% tax deductible.

Thank you for your generous support of our talented student artists!

For more information about this Matching Gift Campaign, please visit the OCSA website or contact Director of Development Chivan Wang at chivan.wang@ocsarts.net.


Of Special Note: Due to additional pandemic funding provided by the State of California to support in-person instruction, OCSA has been able to meet basic conservatory costs to cover salaries and classroom instruction for all conservatory programs. This means every dollar donated to ASSP or H4A will directly benefit the artist-scholars and students in the conservatories you designate to enhance their arts conservatory experience. We kindly ask that all families fulfill their Voluntary Contribution Agreements prior to committing to our Foundation campaigns.
