Please support CLA as we join organizations around the world to encourage giving and celebrate generosity.
This past year highlighted that the arts are an essential part of our shared humanity. As many grappled with the challenges of the times, it was often the arts that pulled them through. This year our services were needed more than ever as artists of all disciplines turned to CLA for support. We hope we can count on YOUR generous support today to help us continue to provide much-needed assistance to the creative community. We could not achieve our goals without the generosity of each and every one of our donors and we thank you for helping us to provide critically needed programs for artists and arts organizations throughout California, while vigorously advocating for the intrinsic value of the arts.
