Join the Movement!
The 2017-2018 HSPVA Friends Annual Giving Campaign
Supporting HSPVA is a team effort.
Did you know that the vast majority of donors to HSPVA Friends give less than $50? HSPVA’s 46-year history of success has created a movement in Houston and around the world. Talent. Drive. Integrity. Creativity. Excellence. When HSPVA students graduate, they carry these qualities with them and reshape their communities.
Join the movement! Give young artists from all across Houston the opportunity to pursue their passions and to forge new paths for civic and artistic innovation. They’re counting on HSPVA Friends. We’re counting on you.
We asked three teachers what they want people to know about HSPVA Friends.
This is what they said.

The HSPVA Friends staff always asks me, “How can we make your life easier? How can we help your department succeed?”
As makers and creators, all of us rely on the funds they generate for art supplies and materials. We have not raised our department fees in over 20 years because of Friends!
HSPVA Friends supports our academic programs as well. They provide funds to bring in speakers for lecture series, and they administer summer program scholarships. I’m about as warm and fuzzy as a porcupine, but I love HSPVA Friends.
Want to make a difference at HSPVA? Start by giving to HSPVA Friends.
HSPVA is often described as having ‘magic’ in its halls. This magic would not exist without HSPVA Friends. Friends provides Broadway choreographer masterclasses, sheet music to fill our music library, new pianos, and travel to national conferences. Because of their dedication to our students, HSPVA continues to be one of the nation’s most renowned schools.
