FOTA takes FCC arts programs to new levels of excellence through scholarship and program support!
Founded in 1985, Friends of the Arts (FOTA) has established scholarships for students entering the Theatre Arts, Music and Dance Programs for more than 25 years. Friends of the Arts also assists with the costs associated with the production of plays, dance programs and marketing for all arts programs.
It is our mission to act as Patrons of the Arts (Fine, Performing, Communication Arts and Creative Writing), supporting excellence and innovation in arts education at Fresno City College through leadership, advocacy and financial support.
It is our vision to champion new and innovative projects that enhance existing programs and curriculum by challenging and stimulating the creative aspirations of students and faculty while contributing significantly to the culture and vitality of our campus and local community.
Our funding criteria is guided by our mission and vision statement and the following criteria:
We do not fund individual students. Equitable distribution of funds among our constituents is a priority.
Our annual dinner, entertainment, and auction fundraiser. Toasting the Arts is a wonderful opportunity to share an evening in support of Fresno City College Arts.
