Private foundations help Otis serve a student body that is diverse to the fullest extent, in a dynamic learning environment that inspires both personal growth and social responsibility.
Strategic philanthropy furthers our mission in meaningful ways, providing flexible funds to address the College’s greatest operational needs; scholarships for talented students who would not otherwise be able to pursue their dreams of higher education and creative professions; resources for curricular enhancements; and investments in capital expansion.
Grants also provide vital support for public programs such as acclaimed artists and designers-in-residence; thought-provoking exhibitions; and community development projects that characterize Otis, the first arts college to be awarded a Community Engagement classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
The impact of charitable contributions is maximized by students, alumni, and faculty alike, who invigorate campus life and ultimately give back through virtuosic, sustainable, and pioneering art and design practices that drive the global creative economy.
Otis seeks partnership with institutional funders who share our commitment to excellence in higher education and innovation in the arts. For more information, please contact Director of Strategic Partnerships, Christine Leahey at (310) 846-2640 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
