The Cultural Arts Rotary Club of Fresno is dedicated to serving the community through partnerships and collaborations with arts oriented organizations in Fresno. Chartered in 1953, the Club has a long history of service and commitment to the values and objectives of Rotary both locally and internationally.

Please take this opportunity to support the good works of the Cultural Arts Rotary Club of Fresno.  Here are a few of the programs you are helping to fund:

Musical Instrument Project - The Cultural Arts Rotary Club Musical Instrument Project loans used in good working order musical instruments to schools for use by students and youth who otherwise would not have the opportunity.  Started in 2009 in partnership with Encourage Tomorrow, the project is in place and active at:

  • Fresno County Economic Opportunities Commission School Of Unlimited Learning - SOUL School
  • Sunset Dual Immersion School
  • Big Picture High School

We have recently made a commitment to include the following schools in the program:

Webster Elementary • Lowell Elementary • Jefferson Elementary • Yokomi Elementary • Tehipite Middle School • VASA – Charter • Susan B. Anthony Elementary

AJ Parker-Foster Memorial Musical Instrument Project - The Cultural Arts Rotary Club of Fresno is honored to act in the capacity of steward for the AJ Parker-Foster Memorial Musical Instrument Project.  The purpose of the project is to gift a musical instrument directly to a youth who has demonstrated a dedication to music, studies and community contribution and who might not otherwise be able to afford the purchase.  The current plan allows for this to be done annually for one student, we have plans to expand this program as well.
