The mission of Friends of Cleveland School of the Arts (FCSA) is to create an environment that empowers children with the opportunity to achieve excellence through an arts education.
FCSA, the primary community partner of CSA, funds, coordinates and facilitates CSA public performance, exhibitions and productions, provides ongoing support for educational activities, and acts as a liaison to community partners and promotes awareness of student achievements.
FCSA sponsors students and faculty collaboration with nearly 40 community arts and cultural organizations.
CSA and FCSA engages and entertains more than 10,000 Northeast Ohio residents annually.
In 2007-2008, FCSA allocated nearly $1 million in programs and services above and beyond what the school district provided to support CSA student successes and achievement.
