Offer a Challenge

CalArts' faculty are more than just educators. They are mentors, leaders, collaborators, and above all artists who inspire our students in ways that they never thought possible. Faculty make CalArts what it is: a place where student-artists can find their voice and thrive.

Now, thanks to a $1 million challenge gift from an anonymous donor, we are asking you to help honor and support the incredible contributions that each of our faculty members make to our extraordinary community of artists.

Our goal is to match this donor’s generosity through public donations as a means for providing faculty with even more critical support during this time of increased financial hardship due to COVID-19. Your gift of any amount will go toward the Faculty Fund.

Thanks to a generous gift from a CalArts' trustee, your gift will be worth twice as much! This $25,000 donation to the Faculty Fund will be used to match your gift and help it make an even greater impact.

We understand that these are challenging and uncertain times and that many CalArtians are struggling and might not be able to provide financial support. If so, we ask you to help us spread the word and tell the important story about the difference that faculty make at CalArts. Share this appeal with your friends and family, provide your own testimonial, and help us support and strengthen the invaluable contribution that faculty play in the life of a CalArtian. 

"I know I speak for many artists when I say that I would not be who I am without John (Baldessari). After four decades, his throwaway words still slosh happily around my brain, coloring my decisions with his wry humor and slapping down pretension at every turn."
                 -Catherine Opie (School of Art MFA 88) in Artforum
