Ways to Give

To provide nationally renowned conservatory arts training and academically rigorous classes, we need your assistance. Delivering on LaGuardia's promise of artistic and academic excellence requires far more money than the NYC Department of Education budgets for our school. While LaG teachers and administrators work diligently to make the most of their budgets, the Parents Association provides much needed additional resources for school productions, studio specific needs, college resource, testing fees, graduation, school supplies, computer equipment, teacher appreciation events, and much more! Donations to specific studios helps provide our students with what is necessary for them to excel in each studio discipline. Whether it’s ballet slippers, a trombone, paint brushes, or nuts and bolts for a new set, our school is unique and requires equipment and supplies other schools just don’t. 


We ask that each family donate $500 to the General PA, and $250 to their student's studio. However, gifts of any amount are deeply appreciated. Our goal is 100% participation from all of our LaGuardia families!  Help us reach out $300,000 goal!
