Response Fund Making a Difference

Dear Idyllwild Arts Community,

Happy New Year. As we prepare to begin online classes next week, and welcome students back to campus shortly thereafter, I am thankful to everyone who has donated to the Idyllwild Arts Response Fund. We received an outpouring of support at year-end; this is a reflection of our close-knit community and our collective resolve to move forward.

We have raised over $515,000, allowing us to respond to immediate needs including scholarships, programs, and operating support. I am deeply grateful to many parents, board members, alumni, members of the Associates of the Idyllwild Arts Foundation, employees, and foundations for making this possible.

In addition to keeping our community safe by providing weekly COVID-19 tests, face masks, and dramatically increased cleaning across campus, your gifts to the Response Fund provide additional financial aid for families in need, facility changes to improve physical distancing, enhanced technology across campus, and so much more.

Thank you for helping us ensure continued navigation of the many unprecedented challenges we’ve faced this year, and paving the way for a brighter 2021 and beyond.

With gratitude,

Palencia Turner

Senior Vice President, Advancement
