Since our founding over sixty years ago, McGroarty Arts Center has had the honor of being a member of the Sunland-Tujunga community. Our symbiotic relationship with our students and patrons has only strengthened over the years. Our programs are funded by the generous donors who recognize the Center as a community centerpiece and a vital part of the under-represented arts community.

Donations and class fees are central to the Center’s funding and continued presence in the community. We are also privileged to receive substantial grants from a select number of wonderful foundations and organizations who have given to ensure that this beacon of artistic expression may continue to grow and prosper. Without the generosity of all of our donors, the Center would cease to exist. We thank you deeply for continuing to be a part of the McGroarty Arts Center family.

In addition to helping support the Arts community, our donors receive extra perks.

Donors receive free/discounted admission to events and VIP invitations to attend donor-only receptions and events ( including the annual Ceramic Show and Art Exhibition openings). In addition to these great benefits we have registration perks for different levels of contribution:
