A North Texas educational organization dedicated to inspiring young people through an arts-based, academic world-view.
Help us ignite a passion for the arts and inspire the next generation!
Each academic year, the generosity of our faculty, staff, parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends helps us add robust and diverse opportunities for over 1,000+ students that simply would not be possible if we relied on state funding alone. FWAFA and TeSA receive about $8,400 per student per year. This number is a few thousand dollars under many of our peer schools. FWISD receives more than $12,000 per student annually.
The Annual Campaign enriches the ongoing excellence of Texas Center for Arts + Academics programs and student activities. Your gift, no matter what the size, is vital to our continued success and our ability to provide support and educational opportunities to our artists, performers, and musicians year-round.

What is the Annual Campaign? TCA+A relies on two fundraisers a year to operate – the TCA+A Gala and the Annual Campaign. The Annual Campaign sets us up for success for the remainder of our fiscal year.
Why do we need to fundraise? Operating as charter schools means we can tailor our tuition free education model to best benefit our unique student body. It also means we do not receive any local funding; therefore, we receive less per student per year than our neighboring Independent School Districts. This puts us at an operational deficit of close to $1 million each school year.
How are donations spent? We use dollars raised from the Annual Campaign to attract and retain talented faculty and staff, make necessary building repairs, fund transportation costs and repairs to our vehicles, and help cover cost for student and faculty travel expenses.
What if I don’t have much to give? All donations, no matter the size, are necessary. Community support gives us leverage when approaching foundations and corporations for large grants and sponsorships. If you can only support one TCA+A fundraiser – make it this one!
When you give to the Annual Campaign you:
On behalf of our students, teachers, and staff here at Texas Center for Arts + Academics, thank you for your support. It is because of donors like you that we are able to do so much of what makes our programs the best in Fort Worth.
