Our Washington County Gives Profile

Since 2009, the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts (BISFA) Foundation has bridged the significant gap between the funds allocated from the Washington County Board of Education and the true cost of the enriched arts education curriculum at BISFA.

Funds raised by the Foundation are used to:

  • support artist-in-residence instructors
  • offer special programs and activities, such as guest artists and master classes
  • purchase specialized equipment and state-of-the art instructional materials
  • host the annual Summer Arts Academy for students in grades 5-12 to engage their inner artist (held virtually in 2020!)

To date, the Foundation has raised over two million dollars to support the school, staff, and individual students. In the 2020-21 school year. BISFA will welcome two new disciplines, which means we can make an impact on even more staff and students. Your support means so much to enhancing arts education in our school and our community.

Examples of what your donation can do:

  • $150 can provide a student grant to help offset educational expenses
  • $500 can provide funds for a specialized master class for 45-minutes
  • $1,000 can provide a guest artist workshop for a day

Each and every donation to the BISFA Foundation supports student artists and arts education in our community. #EveryGiveCounts
