COA's Annual Fund
COA's Annual Fund is the Backbone of Everything We Do.
The Annual Fund is a yearly tradition which raises unrestricted support from COA alumni, parents, friends, trustees, faculty, and staff. We ask everyone who is part of the COA community to participate. Regardless of the amount, each and every gift is important!
Tuition and endowment income combined are not sufficient to meet all operating expenses so the Annual Fund covers the gap and brings much needed support to all programs, enhancements to the academic curriculum, student life, technology (both equipment and education), studio and performing arts, facility maintenance, financial aid, and community outreach.
The Annual Fund campaign begins July 1 and runs until the fiscal year's end on June 30. Special solicitation appeals are made in the fall and spring, but gifts are welcome anytime in the year. We hope that every member of our community understands the importance of the Annual Fund and will participate as generously as possible.
Strong participation in the Annual Fund is also a way for us to demonstrate commitment and dedication to COA. When applying for foundation or corporate gifts, the percentage of individuals who participate in the Annual Fund is the most important measure that is used to evaluate community-wide support.
