Support DFS
Your Support Matters!

When you make a gift to Design for Sharing, you give a world of creativity and inspiration to public school students across Los Angeles.  Every contribution supports our annual series of free matinee performances, workshops, and in-class arts residencies for K-12 students.

What can your gift do for Design for Sharing participants?
  • $125 provides printed programs and educational materials at a Demonstration Performance
  • $500 supports a post-performance Salsa Dance workshop for 50 high schoolers
  • $1,250 allows 75 middle school music students get an up-close look at the instruments of an orchestra
  • $5,000 underwrites one week of in-class arts residency programs for 5 elementary classrooms

Since 1969, more than half a million students have experienced performances in Royce Hall or participated in a hands-on arts activity with DFS—all thanks to our dedicated donors.  We hope you’ll join us in this tradition of sharing.


SUPPORT DFS PROGRAMS

BUY-A-BUS

The Perloff Memorial Bus Fund specifically supports student transportation to UCLA for DFS events.  Even free programs like ours are out of reach for schools that can’t afford a bus. Each year, DFS subsidizes over 180 buses for participating students.

  • $350 will ‘Buy-A-Bus,’ making free transportation available for up 75 students.
  • $175 provides transportation for an entire class.
  • Any amount will make a difference!

Make a gift and give kids a lift!
