It’s tax time!

Be a champion for arts education when filing your California tax return by making a tax-deductible contribution of $1 or more to the Keep Arts in Schools Fund.

One hundred percent of your contribution will go to support arts education programming supported by the California Arts Council.

The “Keep Arts in Schools Voluntary Tax Contribution Fund” can be found in Voluntary Contribution Section 110 (425) of your 540 individual state tax return form.

Arts education is the key to success for California’s students. Students who learn arts at school score higher on tests, have better attendance records and significantly lower dropout rates, and are more than twice as likely to graduate from college.

Yet less than half of California’s students have access to art at their schools.

And those who stand to benefit the most—like low-income students and English-language learners—are the least likely to be given the opportunity. We can—and we should—do better. Learn more here.

Do your part for tomorrow’s innovators who need arts education today.
