The Friends of School of the Arts Foundation is dedicated to supporting the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts, San Francisco's only public arts high school.

We work closely with the school to identify current and future unmet needs and strive to secure funding. The aim is excellence and diversity. Arts education is typically more expensive - artists in residence, arts supplies, musical instruments, technical equipment, educational trips, master classes, etc. Of course, we have also assisted the academic program - course fees, Advanced Placement tests, textbooks, student publications, and collaborative projects.

The Alumni Association is one of the committees under the Foundation's umbrella, chaired by former Principal Joe Rosenblatt. We'd love to hear from all of you, so please update your contact info, send us pics, videos, sound files and we'll post them.  Check back often for news, reunions, etc.

February 2014: FoSOTA's website is currently being upgraded. It will feature a fresh new look, user-friendly navigation, and the latest information about our services. Please come back soon!

The Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit governed by a volunteer board composed of teachers, administrators, parents, cultural and business leaders and alumni. Our federal tax id is: 94 337 3066.

We welcome your interest!
