The California State Summer School Arts Foundation was established in 1986 to raise private sector funds to support CSSSA. Ensuring that no student is denied access to CSSSA due to financial circumstances, the Foundation is dedicated to providing opportunity for all deserving students. We are grateful for the generosity of a wide array of funders and individual donors.
“The CSSSA experience is truly transformative, and leaves an imprint on these students that will last a lifetime. As they are asked to stretch and grow and move beyond their perceived boundaries, new discoveries open doors of understanding for their own lives and for their community. Feeling supported, validated and empowered through the journey of CSSSA, the students are provoked to question assumptions and discard simple solutions. Challenged with the complexity of the ways in which arts and culture shape our lives every day, they will become creative contributors, innovators and leaders of tomorrow!"
