As Metropolitan School of the Arts strives to keep sharing the joy of performing arts in and around our community, we have created The JOY FUND, an emergency fund, to help sustain our school during challenging times brought on by COVID-19. While our faculty works diligently to provide a full array of safe performing arts education experiences at our Studio and Academy, your gift to MSA’s JOY FUND will help us bridge a substantial financial gap.

Due to COVID-19’s economic impact and safety concerns for many families, MSA’s enrollment has decreased by over 200 students, resulting in significant losses in revenue. Ticketed performances also continue to be at risk due to occupancy restrictions and the uncertainty we continue to face.

A gift in any amount will make a difference!

If you can help, consider joining our new “Circle of Joy” Monthly Giving Program by making a monthly donation of $25 or more for one year, one of the best ways to help sustain the organization.

From all of us at Metropolitan School of the Arts, THANK YOU for caring and understanding what it takes to change the world through the kind of arts education that inspires and supports students, faculty and staff to reach their fullest potential as artists, innovators and generous citizens.
