This #GivingTuesday Help Us Give the Gift of the Arts

Entering its sixth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. We know that many worthy organization need your support, but we hope you will consider contributing to the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts' mission of advocating for youth through the arts.

Your #GivingTuesday contribution supports arts in education for Louisiana's students and makes all of our programs possible. 

Through the Annual Scholarship Art Contest, we award $45,000 in scholarships each year to creative high school students across the state.

Art Supplies
Through George's Art Closet, we award custom art supply kits to schools in need across Louisiana.

Teacher Training
Through Louisiana A+ Schools (LAA+), now its own non-profit organization, we transform schools by providing whole faculties with ongoing training and professional development focused on arts integration. Over 700 teachers have been trained in 18 schools statewide, impacting over 10,000 students.

Every donation of $50.00 or more will receive a special GRFA Blue Dog lapel pin designed by George Rodrigue!

Thank you for your support!
