AUArts Boost-A-Student Fund

Helping boost students who need it most.

AUArts Boost-A-Student Fund

For our 1,200 students, their future is art, craft and design, and some are in desperate need of a boost of support. Urgent student financial needs remain high – the demand is higher than ever.

Your gift to the Boost-A-Student Fund will help students who are struggling financially. With the cost of art supplies and food increasing beyond inflation, and with families losing income, some students are struggling with tuition and rent.

Please give what you can

With your support, we can help support our students’ ongoing welfare and success.
Any amount you can give supports the next generation of vital contributors to art, craft and design. A donation before December 31, 2024, can also assist your 2024 tax return – any donation over $20 is eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
