Today, AHAA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Through partnerships with personal, corporate, and institutional donors, as well as it's annual Winter Fine Arts Festival, AHAA raises funds to support arts programs, teachers and students in the Ashland public schools.
AHAA is a volunteer-led non-profit which advocates and raises funds to support Ashland, Oregon area public schools arts programs, teachers and students. AHAA was created out of the huge need to make the arts accessible and equitable for K-12 youth, especially low-income & specific needs youth. Through annual fundraisers, AHAA funds summer programs, teacher grants, guest artists, needed equipment, and organizes the largest annual youth showcase in Ashland. Each year, AHAA provides thousands of dollars in summer arts scholarships to students, as well as annual operational grants to teachers.
