Welcome To
The Foundation

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. When it comes to the arts, the impact spans far beyond the canvas.

Whether it is an event or an educational program, communities, companies and their people benefit deeply from the arts. They fuel our hearts, reshape our minds and challenge us to think outside the box. We can’t wait to ignite this change in you.

Our Vision

Our Mission

Sandy Springs is a community rich with arts and cultural opportunities for ALL of its residents.

Our Purpose

It's more than just a marketing statement, it's at the root of everything we do. We exist to enhance the quality of life for Sandy Springs residents by providing financial support for comprehensive arts education and programing. We do this by engaging donors in the community.
