Annual Fund


The Annual Fund is Creative Arts’ largest fundraising initiative of the year. We rely on strong community support to make many of our programs possible, so you’ll be seeing emails from us throughout the year.

CACS’ unique programming costs over $450,000 more than what we receive from city and state funding, and a lot of it is made possible through our parent-led fundraising. Please contribute if you can, what you are able. We are thankful for the support of our community at every level.
